An Experimental Program of Instruction on the Management of Training.
Haggard, Donald F.; And Others
A 96 hour course on the management of training was developed and evaluated for presentation to Advanced Army Officer Course (AOAC) classes. General procedures consisted of construction based on job task statements, a systems engineering approach to training, a state of the art technology, repeated presentation of course materials, and modification by training research personnel on the basis of student and instructor appraisals. The course was then presented and evaluated by a military instructor. The new course was judged of substantial value by the AOAC students enrolled in it. However, several revisions were suggested: (1) reducing course length to about 30 hours; (2) integrating it more specifically with the CONARC (United States Continental Army Command) Regulation 350-100-1,"Systems Engineering of Training," 1 February 1968; (3) coordinating course materials more closely with course objectives; (4) presenting the revised course as a "progressive" sequence of courses to be provided over an officer's Army career. These revisions would not require further research and development, and could be made by military operational training personnel with technical assistance from researchers. (Author/LY)
