Pelton, Warren G.; And Others
A research and development activity to introduce new and improved education and training technology into Bureau of Medicine and Surgery training is recommended. The activity, called a design and verification unit, would be administered by the Education and Training Sciences Department. Initial research and development are centered on the application of multimedia instructional packages; self contained learning materials and their associated devices, designed using programed learning principles. A second stage of activities for the unit includes research and development in the use of computers for computer-managed training and computer assisted learning. Suggested schedules, activities, and milestones are presented. (The appendixes describe considerations for selecting a computer, costs and features of various information displays and other computer peripherals, specific computer languages, and the UNIVAC STAT-PACK statistical package.)
