A New Approach to the Skills of Effective Teaching. Final Report of the FIPSE Project.
Gale, Larrie E.
This project proposed to design and develop interactive videodiscs for teaching learning theory to teacher education students. The thesis was that simulations provided via interactive video could help prospective teachers both "see" the use of learning theory and more readily transfer theory into practice in the classroom. The intended audiences were students in teacher training programs for both the elementary and secondary levels at Brigham Young University (Utah). The project had three primary emphases: (1) transfer of different forms of instructional materials to videodisc so they might be evaluated by the students under computer control; (2) development of simulations that were examples of the use of learning theory in an actual classroom situation; and (3) conceptualization and development of authoring template tools. Due to important administrative changes in research support, the project was aborted midway. (JD)
