International Symposium for Improvement of Education and International Relations through Cooperative Research.
White, Arthur L.; Berlin, Donna F.
A Center for the Study of Learning has been proposed by the National Institute of Education. This center is to examine a broad spectrum of higher order cognitive skills including the nature, acquisition, and instruction of these skills. The International Consortium for Learning Research and its coordinating institute, The Ohio State University, share similar goals. Research areas identified by the Consortium include: (1) characteristics of learners (learning style and strategies); (2) characteristics of "learnings" (conceptual systems and processes); and (3) components of instructional systems (methods, materials, techniques, and modes). A major purpose of the Consortium is to synthesize and conduct research relevant to each of the three principal factors of the learning context. An emphasis will be placed on science and mathematics. Another goal is to examine the systematic teaching of generalizable cognitive processes and learning strategies and apply the knowledge to the development of learning models. The report contains a model illustrating the interrelationships of the three program strands. (ML)
