Looking into Resource-Based Learning.
This booklet introduces techniques and concepts that can be used for alternative styles of lesson delivery within the context of the autonomous learning approach and self-managing teams that are characteristic of resource-based learning. Much of the information is designed to help teachers enable learners to make good use of information resources. The booklet is divided into five sections that address: (1) role and definitions of resource-based learning; (2) ways to teach that promote, rather than block, learning; (3) increasing learner motivation by letting the learners teach; (4) procedures for running effective adolescent or adult learning groups; and (5) teaching learners to evaluate and assess each other. The latter three sections, which form the bulk of the document, include explicit, step-by-step instructions for facilitating the learning process. The appendixes include brief teacher guides on how to prepare multiple choice questionnaires and how to plan assignments for learners and a learner's assignment preparation guide, which assists learners to assess information needs and resources. (Contains 5 references.) (KRN)
