Three Innovative Teaching Systems: Common Sources of Effectiveness
by George L. Geis — 1970
Sections of Dr. Geis' paper have been adapted from an address he delivered to the 22nd Annual Meeting of the American Conference of Academic Deans. His concern is to examine three teaching environments—the talking typewriter, the coursewriter, and the SAID system (a speech auto-instructional device). After explaining what each involves and demands, he goes on to explicate the instructional engineering principles common to all three. Evoking the Skinnerians, the writer stresses the effectiveness of the three systems and argues for an informed approach to "planning for, and effective production of, human learning" He wishes to express his appreciation to Drs. Fred S. Keller and Harlan L. Lane for criticism and suggestions. Dr. Geis is now with the Center for Research on Language and Language Behavior at the University of Michigan.
