Report of the Project on Individualized Education. Working Draft.
The document provides descriptions of five individualized learning models developed by the Community College of Vermont, a noncampus institution, for its predominantly adult student population. Models include: (1) Cluster, involving 10-30 students in a learning support group to define their needs and interests and to investigate appropriate learning experiences; (2) Experiential, providing an opportunity for the individual student to explore any experience and evaluate it in terms of learning processes; (3) Work Experience, enabling students to combine significant learning in a chosen field with a means for financial support; (4) Classroom, a more traditional approach offering courses for students with similar interests and encouraging them to actively plan, participate in and evaluate the learning experience; (5) Independent Studies, enabling students to set up their own course of study through developing objectives, methods, content, and completion requirements with the aid of an instructor. Each model is discussed in terms of general and step-by-step descriptions, procedures to implement learning for self-reliance (assessment, planning, implementation, evaluation), areas of school support, administrative information regarding model cost-effectiveness, and various forms developed for each model.
