Integrative Learning: Conceptual Design "Jump-Start" Workbook.
Montgomery, Joel R.
This workbook explains the principles and benefits of the integrative learning model and outlines a systems approach to developing an integrated learning-based education/training program. First, the integrative learning model is discussed in the contexts of the shift from teaching-focused to learning focused education and client-based environments and the increasing emphasis on investment priority decisions. Discussed next is the integrative learning model. In this model, a five-step reflective learning process (do, look, think, probe value, plan) is used to integrate new information, experiences, and perspectives into existing life experience and apply new and existing knowledge/skills to accelerate individual and organizational performance change. In the second half of the workbook, a systems approach to integrative learning design is presented that entails using a 10-step transforming process to transform inputs (needs as perceived by stakeholders) into desired outputs (task/learning outcomes). The 10 steps of the transforming process, which are repeated a minimum of three times (each time incorporating feedback), are as follows: determine learning outcomes; identify activities required; plan continuous learning; select relevant context; identify overall goal; determine task outcomes; establish benchmark standards; plan support; build support; and practice facilitating learning experience. Contains 12 references. (MN)
