Incorporating Affective Skills into Performance-Based Vocational Education and Industrial Training.
Pucel, David J.
Although those psychomotor procedures that were the basic components of occupations of the industrial age still need to be taught, there is a growing need to teach the cognitive behaviors and affective behaviors associated with information processing and service-related occupations. The techniques that have worked well to teach psychomotor behaviors can and should be modified to embrace the teaching of occupationally related cognitive and affective behaviors. Solid competency-based procedures can be adapted to teach affective behaviors. First, job-related affective behaviors that are required for a person to succeed in the occupation can be identified through a job analysis. Second, the specific content that an instructor must teach for a learner to acquire those behaviors must be identified through behavior detailing. Third, how the behavior will be taught must be planned. The Performance-Based Instructional Design System contains a lesson structuring (planning) system that is equally applicable to the psychomotor and affective behaviors. (This system is explained and sample charts, checklists and other illustrative materials are included.) (YLB)
