A Multi-Media Training Program for Practitioners of the SR/SE.
Garcia, Sally
"The Survey of Reading and Study Efficiency" (SR/SE), which is used to diagnose and prescribe learning skills, requires careful training before it is administered. To address this need, a comprehensive multi-media program was designed to orient practitioners in the rationale and background of the SR/SE. The training program has five characteristics: it is rigorous, systematic, mathemagenic, cybernetic, and media-based. The first step in developing the program was to outline the objectives. The program was next organized into sub-categories which were analyzed to determine which combination of media and personnel would best achieve the objectives. The completed program consists of print media, slides, and cassettes, in combination with personnel. The mathemagenic ("learning by doing") aspect of the program provides "hands on" experience for the learner. The cybernetic aspect is included for two reasons: evaluation and improvement of the program, and learner verification and/or clarification. Finally, a multi-media approach was selected because it facilitates duplication of those aspects of the training process that remain static. (FL)
