Implementing the Learner-Designed Individual Program Style in Physical Education
Chatoupis, Constantine
Strategies: A Journal for Physical and Sport Educators, v31 n2 p19-25 2018
The purpose of this article is to guide the teacher in implementing the learner-designed individual program style (LDIP) in physical education settings. The LDIP style is one of the 11 spectrum teaching styles that promote self-directed learning. The spectrum of teaching styles is a conceptual framework that helps describe and organize the instructional process. The learning focus of the LDIP style is to acknowledge a student's motivation and cognitive intentions to design his or her own learning experience. The teacher's role is to make decisions concerning the general subject matter. The role of the student is to make decisions about how to investigate the general subject matter topic by producing questions that lead to a specific focus within the general topic, producing questions that result in identifying the process and procedures, discovering the solutions/movements, and designating the performance criteria. In this article an introductory LDIP style scenario is presented to give teachers an idea of how this style can be used in the classroom. Also, two task sheets are described that can help students start with the discovery process embedded in the LDIP style.
