An Instructional System Design for Vocational Education.
Shoemaker, Byrl R.; Parks, Darrell L., Ed.
This publication presents an instructional system design (ISD) which is a systematic procedure for assuring the application of planning and organization to vocational programs. The resulting instructional system, according to the author, is an integrated combination of resources, students, instructors, materials, equipment, techniques, and procedures performing effectively and efficiently the functions required to achieve specified learning objectives. This presentation of the ISD breaks the design down into sequential steps grouped into separate chapters titled as follows: Philosophy and Standard Characteristics of Vocational Education, a Foundation for Curriculum Development; Concepts and Practices in Vocational Curriculum Development; Using Surveys and Analyses as a Basis for the Development of a Course Outline; Instructional Objectives; Determining Instructional Program Strategies; Scope and Sequence of Tasks; Grouping and Scheduling for the Instructional Program; Determining the Related Instructional Content; Determining Evaluation Strategies; and Outline of Procedure for the Development of a Course of Study. Each chapter includes definitions of related terms and specific strategies/suggestions for the topical area. Summaries, flow charts, and references are also included in some chapters. A glossary of curriculum terms is appended. (SH)
