Transfer and Use of Training Technology: A Model for Matching Training Approaches with Training Settings. Technical Report No. 74-24.
Haverland, Edgar M.
The report describes a project designed to facilitate the transfer and utilization of training technology by developing a model for evaluating training approaches or innovtions in relation to the requirements, resources, and constraints of specific training settings. The model consists of two parallel sets of open-ended questions--one set concerning the characteristics of the training approach under consideration, and one set concerning the requirements, resources, and constraints in the specific training setting. When these questions have been answered, the information needed to evaluate how well the training approach fits the training setting is available and arrayed in a convenient format. The model can be used: when the training setting is given and the problem is to select training approaches; to analyze and describe training approaches in terms relevant to the concerns of the training designer and developer; and to make an inventory of the characteristics of a training setting, without any particular training approach in mind. The report also includes chapters on: background; description of the model (including its development and initial testing); field evaluation and revisions; discussion of the model; applications; and conclusions and implications. An appendix presents an application of the model to a peer instruction training approach. (Author/PR)
