Illinois Univ., Urbana. Dept. of Vocational and Technical Education.
Twelve instructional modules, concerned with the human aspects of working in organizations, have been designed for utilization at various educational levels ranging from high school to adult and continuing education and in both academic and vocational programs. The modular titles are the following: (1) working in organizations, (2) motivation for work, (3) understanding self, (4) interpersonal relations, (5) effective communications, (6) using creativity at work, (7) problem solving, (8) authority and responsibility, (9) leadership, (10) coping with conflict, (11) coping with change, and (12) adopting and planning for the future. Each module is organized into five or more sessions and each session is arranged according to the following components: topic; objective; skills emphasized; importance of session topic; materials and equipment needed (copies of student worksheets and handouts and transparency masters are included); activity description; and follow-up. Teacher resources including the titles, sources, and descriptions of books, articles, and audiovisual aids conclude each module. A sixteen-item multiple choice test was designed for each module (available in document CE 018 569). In developing the modules research was conducted on competencies that workers need in order to maintain an occupation, and the modules were field tested in several settings. (The modules are CE 018 557-568.) (JH)
