Introduction to Teaching Adults. Module 7: Managing Instruction.
This module on basic concepts and principles about managing instruction and their applications in the classroom is the seventh 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 purpose of the module is to help teachers establish a good learning climate for adults, work with them in refining instructional objectives, and provide an appropriate sequence of activities that will enable adults to learn effectively and efficiently. It discusses elements of adult instruction and the four steps in the process of managing instruction--establish climate, refine objectives, provide events of instruction, and assess achievement.
