THE THEORY OF TRAINING AND THE TRAINER ROLE IN THE INDIANA PLAN INSTITUTE.
FRYE, ROYE MELTON
THE THEORY OF TRAINING IN THE INDIANA PLAN INSTITUTE WAS INVESTIGATED AND THE NATURE OF THE TRAINER ROLE AS ITS FOCAL MEANS OF ACTUALIZATION WAS ANALYZED. DATA WERE GATHERED FROM LITERATURE, WRITINGS, AND THE INVESTIGATOR'S TRAINING EXPERIENCE. FIVE CATEGORIES WERE CHOSEN FOR STUDY--(1) EDUCATIONAL CONDITIONS AND RESULTS OF THE INDIANA PLAN, (2) NATURE OF THE INSTITUTE, (3) THEORY OF INSTITUTE TRAINING, (4) THE TRAINER ROLE AND (5) STANDARDS, ISSUES, AND PROBLEMS OF INSTITUTE TRAINING. IT WAS FOUND THAT EDUCATIONAL CONDITIONS IN THE PLAN ARE THE EMBODIMENT OF PRINCIPLES OF LEARNING IN A DEMOCRATIC CONTEXT, PRINCIPLES OF METHOD FOR COLLABORATION AMONG ADULT LEARNERS IN THE PROCESS OF GROWTH, AND TASKS TO BE PERFORMED IN TRAINING ADULTS HOW TO LEARN. AN ANTECEDENT-CONSEQUENT RELATIONSHIP OBTAINS BETWEEN THE EDUCATIONAL CONDITIONS AND RESULTS OF THE PLAN. THE STRUCTURED LEARNING SITUATION PROVIDES THREE TYPES OF TRAINING-IN-GROUP PARTICIPATION, OUT-GROUP PARTICIPATION, AND TRANSFER. AMONG CONCEPTS INTEGRAL TO TRAINING THEORY ARE AUTHORITATIVE GUIDANCE, FEEDBACK, REINFORCEMENT, AND GROUP SELF APPRAISAL. THE TRAINER ROLE IS CONDITIONED BY SUCH VARIABLES AS--CURRICULUM, COMPOSITION OF THE TRAINING GROUP, AND HIS EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY.
