Introduction to Teaching Adults. Module 2: Using Instructional Techniques.
This module on effective use of instructional techniques is the second of 11 modules in the set, Introduction to Teaching Adults. Designed to meet the learning needs of part-time continuing education instructors, these modules can be used as resource materials for local workshops or study-discussion groups, as self-instruction (each module takes approximately two hours), and as a correspondence course. (Source information on correspondence study is cited in module 1.) All modules except the first are designed to be used in part in conjunction with an audiotape. The first part of the booklet contains several exercises for use with the tape. The major part of the booklet is a detailed guide for using 12 instructional techniques: lecture panel, debate, demonstration, field trip, case study, buzz groups, group discussion, brainstorming, role play, simulation, and practice and drill. Each technique is briefly described and the role of the instructor and participant outlined. An assignment to use a new technique is followed by a checklist for evaluating its use. (YLB)
