Operational Context Training in Individual Technical Skills.
Hoehn, Arthur J.; And Others
Four papers were presented at a conference dealing with the objectives and problems of operational context training (OCT) sponsored by HumRRO in June 1958. The first paper (by William McCleland) outlines the objectives of the conference and its general goals. The second paper (by Arthur J. Hoehn) describes the use of operational context training to increase job performance of military skills through the development of materials and techniques specifically designed to fit the characteristics of the operational setting. The third paper (by Myron Woolman) describes the rationale and gives an illustration of OCT. The illustration consists of developing and testing a method of on site training of inexperienced Nike integrated fire operators. The fourth paper (by Robert Glaser) discusses operational context training in terms of the human component--its readiness, logistics, and cost of OCT. The appendix includes statement of five immediate issues to be considered in research of OCT. (Author/PT)
