Designing Learning Guides for TAFE and Industry.
Bruhn, Peter; Guthrie, Hugh
Intended for industry trainers and Technical and Further Education teachers in Australia, especially those who are consultants to industry, this manual on the design and use of learning guides is presented in two main parts. Part 1 provides basic information on learning guides--why their development is important, what they are, why they should be used, how to make the best use of them, how learning guides fit in with competency-based training, and how to use them with a computer-managed learning approach. Part 2 focuses on design for learning guides and includes discussions on: (1) matching of learning guides with existing resources; (2) evaluation of the learning resources; (3) the learning guide design team; (4) the parts of the learning guide; (5) writing of supplementary learning materials; and (6) presentation guidelines for learning guide writers. Appendixes include a paper on definitions that complements Part 1 and a bibliography of 27 useful resources on award and industry restructuring. An attachment includes three examples of learning guides that have been produced by two industry organizations and a TAFE organization. Also attached is a learning guide on how to write a learning guide. Contents include learning outcomes, needed resources, 12 activities that guide the user through the relevant sections of the manual, self-check sections at the end of each activity, review, final assessment, and annotations of three books for further reading.
