An Action Oriented Review of the On-the-Job Training Literature.
Stephenson, Robert W.; Burkett, James R.
On-the-job training literature from both civilian and military sources was reviewed. Selected references from the study are organized under the following headings: literature reviews and bibliographies, handbooks and manuals, cost effectiveness literature, technique comparison studies, systems analysis of training, approaches to program evaluation, and military documents. Many of the items are annotated, some rather extensively. In addition, a number of references were selected that were thought to contain innovative ideas that should be considered for improving on-the-job training programs. The list of possible innovations is organized under the following topics: administration, audiovisual presentation, computer-assisted techniques, evaluation, incentives/motivation, instructional techniques, periodic surveys, and program design. The various ways in which these innovations might address current problems in the Air Force on-the-job training program are described and commented on. Estimates are also made of the resource requirements involved if possible modifications in existing procedures were to be implemented. (Author/PR)
