TRAINING IN INDUSTRY--THE MANAGEMENT OF LEARNING.
BASS, BERNARD M.; VAUGHAN, JAMES A.
THE PRINCIPLES OF LEARNING BEHAVIOR DERIVED THROUGH LABORATORY STUDY CAN BE EXTENDED TO EXPLAIN MUCH OF THE COMPLEX LEARNING REQUIRED IN INDUSTRIAL TRAINING PROGRAMS. A REVIEW OF THE BASIC PRINCIPLES OF HUMAN LEARNING INTRODUCES FOUR BASIC CONCEPTS--DRIVE, STIMULUS, RESPONSE, AND REINFORCER--AND DISCUSSES CLASSICAL AND INSTRUMENTAL CONDITIONING AND HIGHER FORMS OF LEARNING. THE STRATEGY OF TRAINING INVOLVES THREE STEPS--(1) STATEMENTS OF THE CONTENT OF THE TRAINING PROGRAM, CHARACTERISTICS OF THE LEARNER AND HIS ENVIRONMENT, THE OVER-ALL ORGANIZATIONAL CLIMATE, AND THE RELATION OF TRAINING TO COMPANY GOALS, (2) DECISIONS ABOUT HOW AND BY WHOM THE CONTENT WILL BE TAUGHT, INCLUDING DISCUSSION OF BOTH CURRENT INDUSTRIAL TRAINING TECHNIQUES AND PROMISING INNOVATIONS AND THE EXTENT TO WHICH THEY CONFORM TO THE PRINCIPLES OF LEARNING, AND (3) ADMINISTRATION AND EVALUATION OF THE TRAINING PROGRAM. TRAINING NEEDS AND THE EFFECTIVENESS OF TRAINING PROGRAMS MUST BE ASSESSED CONTINUOUSLY IN A CAREFULLY DESIGNED AND EXECUTED RESEARCH PROGRAM.
