Learning Experience and Its Design



Role clarity is an essential requirement for effective performance. There has been considerable confusion in the minds of young lecturers as to what they are expected to perform and with what responsibility.

Let Us Understand the Terminology

Instructional Models Models represent the broadest level of instructional practices and present a philosophical orientation to instruction. Models are used to select and to structure teaching strategies, methods, skills, and student activities for a particular instructional emphasis. Joyce and Weil (1986) identify four models: information processing, behaviourial, social interaction, and personal.

Instructional Strategies Within each model several strategies can be used. Strategies determine the approach a teacher may take to achieve learning objectives. Strategies can be classed as direct, indirect, interactive, experiential, or independent.

Instructional Methods Methods are used by teachers to create learning environments and to specify the nature of the activity in which the teacher and learner will be involved during the lesson. While particular methods are often associated with certain strategies, some methods may be found within a variety of strategies.

Instructional Skills Skills are the most specific instructional behaviours. These include such techniques as questioning, discussing, direction-giving, explaining, and demonstrating. They also include such actions as planning, structuring, focusing, and managing.

Why this project?

This is a collaborative effort of the 'Regional Institute of Education, Mysore' and the 'Department of Pre-University Education, Bangalore' to provide in-service professional development inputs for the lecturers of the Junior Colleges in Karnataka. This need was primarily felt by the department since the existing recruitment rules do not make a professional degree in teaching mandatory for becoming a lecturer. It is also true that the existing Bachelor of Education programme does not cater to the requirements of a P U lecturer since it is primarily aimed at preparation of secondary school teachers

It is felt that the lecturers at the +2 level have diverse needs for in-service professional development. Broadly they may be classified as 'Content Enrichment' and 'Training in Methodology of Teaching'. This programme is visualised as a generic training in methodology of teaching at P U level.

What is an Induction Programme?

In-service teacher education programmes are of various kinds. Induction programme, Orientation programme, Refresher programme, etc. An induction programme is that programme which provides inputs necessary for a person to start performing certain functions expected of him/her. It may have awareness inputs, attitudinal inputs and competency development inputs.The induction programme for DIET faculty, therefore, would provide inputs necessary for a person to perform functions expected of him/her in a DIET.
