Banathy, Bela H.; And Others
This instructional system is designed to train individuals in the role of Educational Information Consultant (EIC). The EIC serves as a linkage agent between the worlds of educational research and practice by (1) negotiating with a client concerning information need, (2) retrieving pertinent information, (3) transforming the information, (4) communicating the information to the client, and (5) self evaluation. This EIC instructional system is intended for independent study by a Learning Team of three to five persons and is divided into seven instructional modules. Instructional activities in the modules consist of four phases: (1) individual preparation, (2) team learning, (3) team application, and (4) individual and team performance evaluation. Appended are instructions for compiling a 'paper trail' or record of decisions and actions taken in serving a client. (Author/STS)
