Design and Development of Instructional Modules for Transportation Education and Development and Evaluation of Diffusion and Adoption Plan. Final Report.
DeVore, Paul W.
The background and objectives of the 1985-1986 Transportation Education Project of the Urban Mass Transportation Agency (UMTA) are discussed, along with project activities. The project was undertaken to transfer knowledge gained from federally-sponsored research and demonstrations to transit systems and to include the knowledge in college courses that deal with public transportation. In 1983 UMTA funded West Virginia University to develop instructional modules based on UMTA innovations in three areas: paratransit, market segmentation planning, and transportation brokerage. The modules are flexible and concept-based and were developed through extensive reviews and field tests by transportation educators and experts. Appendices include: a list of field reviewers and field tests of instructional modules and reviewers of the diffusion/adoption plan, a module field review questionnaire, a module field test questionnaire, a list of conferences and presentations by the project team in developing the diffusion/adoption plan, and the field review questionnaire for the plan.
