A Complemental Approach to Instructional Development.
Hassan, M. H.
In its relatively short history, instructional development has been greatly influenced by operant conditioning theory and methodology. This approach has been described by some as simplistic, inhuman, and inflexible. The humanistic approach, on the other hand, focuses on affective, emotional, and intellectual learning experiences. But it seems to lack a definite position and precise procedures. The two approaches are examined and compared. It is suggested, through the concept of complementarity, that both perspectives are useful and needed for a complete instructional development operation. A tentative program of action is proposed for discussion. (Author/MSE)
