Abstract:

The author hopes that programmed instruction and automated teaching rather than dehumanizing man will humanize him. It is poor teaching and poor, dull and boring teachers who have hidden behind the routine and drill that have led to much student failure and to the subsequent dehumanization of man. The plea of programmed instruction to our society is to offer the lamp of learning beside the golden door in the best socratic and tutorial tradition of teaching. The burden for learning is no longer solely on the students shoulders but that it is now equally if not more so on the shoulders of he who would consider himself a true professional in the field of education and in what may someday become the science of pedagogy.
