Self-Paced Tutorial Courses for Mineral Science - Metallurgy Departments. Final Progress Report (July 1975-August 1980).
Twidwell, L. G.
Four courses in extractive metallurgy (Pyrometallurgy, Hydrometallurgy, Electrometallurgy; and Physical Chemistry of Iron and Steel) were prepared in a modular, self-paced format. Development of the course materials included: (1) preparation of course outlines by unit coordinators and advisory committees; (2) approval of course outlines (included in appendices) by task forces; (3) preparation and review of materials (including slide-tape programs) by coordinators and task forces; (4) use of materials by students in self-paced courses, as text materials for lecture classes, and as supplementary text materials; (5) revision based on student and instructor feedback; and (6) reuse by students. The course materials are for use at Montana College of Mineral Science and Technology as (1) text materials for lecture courses given at their once-a-year scheduled times; (2) self-paced courses for students who desire to take the courses at times other than the scheduled time; (3) self-paced courses for interested industry people who want to take courses while remaining on the job; and (4) self-paced deficiency courses for entering graduate students. Copies of the courses and slide-tape programs (which may be borrowed, reproduced, and returned) are available from the author. (Author/JN)
