Developing Learning Packets at South Oklahoma City Junior College.
Allen, Robert F.
Seven learning modules are presented to aid instructors at South Oklahoma City Junior City College (SOCJC) in developing learning packets for their own courses. Each module contains a rationale and objectives, a pre-assessment test, informational material, learning activities, and a self-assessment instrument. The first module provides a general rationale for the development of learning packets by instructors, which links the educational philosophy of SOCJC to this instructional methodology. Each of the subsequent modules focuses on a different component of packet development, including: (1) the preparation of the rationale section of the learning packet, covering the purpose of a rationale, motivational factors, and characteristics of effective rationales; (2) the development of module objectives, describing behavioral objectives, course content planning, and classification and sources of objectives; (3) the selection, implementation, and sequencing of learning activities; (4) the application of principles of assessment, focusing on pre-, self-, and post-assessment, criterion-referenced vs. norm-referenced testing, and criterion test construction; (5) the development of alternate tracks to accommodate different learning styles; and (6) the revision of learning packets, based on periodic review, test results, and feedback, and the procedures for the approval of new or revised packets.
