A Research Proposal to Develop and Mediate 72 Modules of Individualized Instructional Materials in Four Occupational Areas, and to Develop the Capacity to Reproduce and Distribute Mediated Instructional Materials to Other Educational Institutions. Final Report.
State Fair Community Coll., Sedalia, MO.
The vocational-technical staff at State Fair Community College conducted a curriculum research project in which twenty-one previously developed modules were revised and updated and seventy-two new modules of individualized mediated instructional materials were developed in the occupational areas of (1) agribusiness, (2) business and office occupations, (3) health occupations, and (4) trade and industrial welding. These modules were not only applicable to postsecondary education, but were also adaptable to secondary youth and special needs programs for disadvantaged and handicapped individuals. Modules developed were identified and later reviewed by advisory committees and state department of education program officers. Instructors developed a student packet, instructor's guide, and script for the modules. Slide/tape presentations or videotapes for the modules were developed by media specialists. A two-day inservice curriculum workshop was held to improve instructors' curriculum development competencies. A media production and distribution center established at State Fair Community College in 1975 was reorganized and expanded. Displays of modules available were set up at state vocational association meetings and brochures were mailed to instructors. From July 1, 1976, through December 30, 1977, approximately 537 modules were distributed to ninety educational institutions, including schools outside Missouri. (Author)
