|Other Titles:||Work-Based Instructional Development for ＂Capstone project＂ in Vocational Schools: The Case of Observational Learning|
National Taiwan Normal University Department of Technology Application and Human Resource Development
This study aims to develop the work-based instructional design for ＂capstone project＂ at automotive mechanics departments in vocational schools, as well as to establish systematic instructional procedures. The content of this instructional design primarily guides students to observe and record the practical operational procedures of senior technicians in the workplace. Taking automotive mechanics departments as an example, students can observe and record the repair and maintenance process of masters, including: how to ask automobile owners about vehicle conditions and malfunctions, how to determine the source of malfunctions, how to discuss the component types to be used (original manufacturer, subsidiary manufacturer, remanufactured components, refurbished components, etc), how to quote prices for the owners, actual disassembly and assembly (component replacement) procedures, testing after repairs, and vehicular delivery procedures. Students learn the complete repair process, rather than merely observing repairs or the components replacement procedure. The four research conclusions include: this instructional study can help to integrate professional know-how across different subject areas, can establish the overall repair know-how for students at automotive mechanics departments in vocational schools, enable students to quickly gain a sense of accomplishment, and allow teachers to gain practical information from the workplace. Finally, this study provides relevant suggestions to vocational schools and educational administrative institutions, respectively.
