Text, illustrations, and exercises are utilized in a set of five learning modules designed to instruct college faculty and education students in selected instructional development skills, the characteristics of adult learners, and the effects of frequently abused drugs. The first module, "How to Write Structured Response Test Items" by Douglas White, helps the instructor develop skills in writing multiple choice, dichotomous choice, and matching test questions. The second module, "How to Write Behavioral Objectives" by Douglas White, examines the use of Bloom's Taxonomy and task analysis. The third module, "Using a Resource Management Format to Produce Modules" by Darryl Sink, explains how to incorporate a general overview of the purposes of the module, an outline of learning objectives and activities, and a criterion-referenced evaluation methodology when developing learning modules. The fourth module, "The Adult Learner" by Martha Newby, examines the characteristics of adult students and offers guidance in using this information in evaluating and developing courses and programs. The fifth module, "Basic Drug Information for Teachers" by Colleen Wiessner, describes the effects of hallucinogens, stimulants, downers, narcotics, and solvents. Each of the modules, which take 20 to 30 minutes to complete, provide reinforcement exercises and a post-test. (JP)
