Using Conversion and Design Social R & D Principles to Identify Some Practice Implications for the Training of Trainers.
Lapides, Jerry
This literature review examines 12 current works dealing with converting basic research on adult learning, adult development, adult education, instructional methods, and learning theory to practical application in the training of trainers. Focus of the review is on translating principles from scientific language to language more suitable to categories of normal usage, converting research findings from descriptive to prescriptive formulations, and identifying such dimensions of the information as feasibility, costs, limiting conditions, and qualifiers that restrict or channel use. Included among those works summarized are the following: "The Lecture: Increasing Student Learning," by N. J. Fiel; "The Order of Presentation in Persuasion," by Carl I. Hovland; "Adverse and Growthful Effects of Experiential Learning Groups; The Role of the Trainer Participant and Group Characteristics," by C. L. Cooper; "Optimizing Adult Development; Ends and Means of an Applied Psychology of Aging," by J. L. Fazard and S. J. Popkin; "Cognitive Strategy Training and Intellectual Performance in the Elderly," by G. Labouvie-Vief and J. N. Gonda; "Adult Education and Adult Needs," by R. J. Havinghurst; "Theory of Levels of Human Existence and Suggested Managerial Systems for Each Level," by C. W. Graves; and "Improving Inservice Training; The Messages of Research," by B. Joyce and B. Showers. (MN)
