The Process of Developing and Improving Course Content for Military Technical Training.
Hunter, Harold G.
Educational Technology, Apr 1970 and May 1971
Curriculum development procedures in use as of 1966 for first enlistment technical training in the Army, Navy, and Air Force are analyzed. A model process for training curriculum development was defined from training research findings and practices: Analyze the system, develop task inventories, develop a job model, analyze its tasks, derive training objectives, develop the training program, and monitor the trained product and modify the curriculum. A comparison between this model and the training development procedures in use in the services indicated a need for better procedures for determining the adequacy of training content and the means for improvement; detailed guidance for developing or conducting the first four steps of the model process, criteria for allocating training content to formal instruction or on-the-job learning, performance specifications for graduates, and feedback from training programs; and more opportunities for career fields in training.
