Experience-Based Learning and the Facilitative Role of the Teacher.
Jenks, C. Lynn; Murphy, Carol J.
Four books are incorporated into a volume for secondary and postsecondary teachers who wish to become familiar with experiential learning techniques. An overview on experience-based learning and the facilitative role of the teacher is presented in Book One. Book Two deals with planning with students, Book Three concerns the monitoring of student progress, and Book Four deals with evaluating student progress. Together, they present ways to improve the training process, dealing specifically with why and how experiential learning activities might be integrated into instructional programs and how the teachers' roles might be modified accordingly. Each book is comprised of reading materials that introduce concepts about and procedures for experience-based training and corresponding teacher functions. Guided activities and an annotated bibliography of selected source materials are included in each book. A program coordinator's handbook is provided. (JD)
