A Model for Personalizing Instruction in Teacher Education.
Reiff, Judith C.
The DICSIE (describe, interact, control, select, instruct, and evaluate) model provides a systematic approach to personalizing instruction in teacher education. First, the individual learning style of the student is determined and a description is given by the instructor of the teaching methods most commonly used in the classroom. Awareness of the importance of interaction between student and learning style, instructor and learning style, instructor and teaching style, as well as student and teaching style, is of fundamental importance in this model. Once identification is made of different cognitive styles, teachers and students may systematically plan how they will incorporate their personal styles into studying and instructing. Student involvement is increased by diversified teaching styles and the model encourages teachers to be flexible and versatile in selecting a variety of appropriate instructional strategies. Ongoing evaluation of interaction between student and instructor provides the instructor with more complete and accurate information about the capabilities and progress of the student. (JD)
