Individualized Learning Center Management: A User's Guide.
Salser, Mark R.
Guidelines for replicating the Educational Research Associates' (ERA) individualized instruction system are presented. The ERA system uses audio recordings in place of traditional lectures for student instruction. The audio recordings are augmented by a printed syllabus or workbook which requires substantial notetaking and/or problem solving so that students are presented with a visual stimulus as well as an aural stimulus. Topics covered in this guide include: (1) background on individualized instruction and the ERA system; (2) the advantages of individualized instruction for teachers and students; (3) a description of the ERA instructional program and materials; (4) suggestions for purchasing and arranging hardware and furniture for an Individualized Learning Center; (5) an analysis of costs based upon the number of students and course offerings involved; (6) guidelines for managing the facility; (7) recommendations for teaching strategies; (8) suggestions for public relations; and (9) a 28-item bibliography of suggested readings on individualized instruction and student learning. A subject index is provided. (DC)
