Common Core Curriculum for Vocational Education. Category E: Curriculum Design in Vocational Education. E-2: Applying Learning Theory to Vocational Education.
This module on applying learning theory to vocational education is one of a set of three on curriculum design in vocational education and is part of a larger series of thirty-four modules constituting a core curriculum intended for use in the professional preparation of vocational educators in the areas of agricultural, business, home economics, and industrial education. Following the module objective and overview and a bibliography of suggested resource materials (readings) for the entire module, five lessons are presented: (1) examining what is meant by learning; (2) identifying and describing various learning theories; (3) determining how learning theories are related to education; (4) determining how learning theories are related to vocational education; and (5) relating how an understanding of learning theory is essential for developing curriculum design in vocational education. Each lesson contains the objective, overview, a list of suggested learning activities, and a list of suggested resources (readings). Concluding the module is a pre/posttest and an answer key. (The modules have been field tested in various educational settings, including bachelor and masters degree programs, and are considered adaptable to many instructional styles and student entry levels. CE 018 935-937 contain working papers and other materials used in the development of the module series.) (JH)
