A Guide to the Selection of Instructional Methods. Teaching and Learning in Higher Education, 2.
This booklet is the first of four sequels to the guide "Educational Objectives" that discuss the selection and use of instructional methods. Following a brief introduction, the systems approach to course or curriculum design is reviewed, and the selection of appropriate instructional methods is described as the second key step in the course or curriculum development process. In addition, the wide range of instructional methods available to teachers and lecturers are discussed, and three broad categories of methods are identified--mass instruction techniques, individualized learning techniques, and group learning techniques. Finally, the range of techniques available within each category is examined, and the educational strengths and weaknesses of each technique are discussed. The text is supplemented with two figures and four tables, and two sources for further reading are listed. (KM)
