Training the Innovative Agent.
Chapman, Reuben E.
This third in a series of three papers on the Associated Staff Training Program of the Foreign Language Innovative Curriculum Study discusses the training of Instructional Systems Consultants, describing in detail the skills necessary for proper handling of an innovative problem-solving routine. The six major skill areas, which correspond to the main stages of the routine, are identified as (1) problem explication, (2) quantification of behavior, (3) behavior modification, (4) instructional design, (5) research, and (6) dissemination and maintenance. The program's reliance on feedback and measurement is emphasized. For related discussions see FL 001 009 and FL 001 028. (AF)
