Structural Design with Individualized Instruction.
Milks, Donald E.
This paper describes the use of individualized instruction concepts in courses on structural design in undergraduate engineering programs. Areas covered include the distribution of time, unit packages, laboratory, and grading. Specific features discussed include class discussion, programmed problems, and summary units. Outcomes of such courses have been: (1) more effective learning of course materials by students, (2) greater efficiency in time spent by teachers and students, (3) better student-teacher relationships, (4) better understanding of course objectives by teachers, and (5) immediate feedback to students and teachers. It is suggested that individualized instruction would be useful in continuing education for professional engineers. (DAG)
