From Objectives to Instruction. Dacum 4.
Mitchell, Barbara J.
This booklet, the fourth in a series of four volumes on the Designing a Curriculum (Dacum) process, is intended to assist instructors and trainers in examining some of the issues involved in translating a Dacum chart and curriculum objectives into an instructional program. Discussed first are various points of view as to where program development ends and instructional design begins. Procedures are set forth for translating curriculum guidelines into an instructional plan, analyzing objectives, selecting instructional techniques, choosing instructional resources, and evaluating learning and instruction. Covered next are the craft and art of instructing adults as well as the following four British Columbian programs for adult educators: the Instructor's Diploma Program (an in-service for postsecondary and certain secondary teachers), Introduction to Teaching Adults (a self-help program), the Instructional Skills Workshop Program for Postsecondary Instructors, and the Teaching Techniques Series (a series of videotapes and booklets). The services of the British Columbia Provincial Postsecondary Resource Centre are described. Concluding the booklet is an annotated list of some commercially available materials on the subject of competency-based education and its implications for instruction. (MN)
