An Individualized Instructional Management System for Vocational Educators of Special Needs Students...Or How Can I Be in 15 Places at Once? LINCpaper 822.
Dick, Marlene A.
Intended for vocational educators, the monograph analyzes the role of individualized instruction in vocational programing for special needs students. Characteristics of an individualized approach include active learning, instructional objectives, small units, evaluation, and self-pacing. Suggestions are offered for implementing an individualized approach in terms of units of instruction based on job analysis, goals and objectives reflecting entry level to more advanced job skills, a variety of instructional activities matched to the objectives, pre and post assessment devices to measure objectives, a learning environment that facilitates individual learning, and an efficient record keeping system. The final section considers the establishment of an instructional management system to monitor the flow of activities and document the progress of instruction. (CL)
