A Proposal for the Development and Field Testing of a Computer-Managed Delivery System for Improving the Inservice Training of Vocational School Personnel within Their Respective School Setting. Final Report.
Pyle, Robert B.; Cook, Susan E.
A project studied the feasibility of delivering instructional modules via a computer-managed instructional system for preparing and certifying inservice vocational education teachers. The project developed a computer-based system to deliver and manage instructional modules, developed and field tested twenty instructional modules, and developed a procedure for evaluating the effectiveness and efficiency of individual performance-based modules as delivered by a computer-based system. The project served fifteen inservice vocational education teachers and attempted to meet project objectives by (1) utilizing performance-based teacher education modules stressing individualized instruction via a computer-managed system, (2) utilizing advisement processes that will be improved by setting aside blocks of time at each vocational education setting, (3) developing performance-based modules to limit time spent in a North Carolina A&T State University classroom and increase course-content meaningfulness in meeting inservice needs of teachers in their unique setting, and (4) reducing class meetings through independent studies aided by instructional modules and on-site instructor observations. The project demonstrated that it was feasible to develop a computer-managed instructional system that can individualize instruction for students and provide activities consistent with professional course requirements.
