Instructional Delivery.
This document consists of three papers presented during a symposium on instructional delivery moderated by Larry Dooley at the 1996 conference of the Academy of Human Resource Development (HRD). "Distance Education: An Emerging Concept for HRD Programs" (Margaret R. Schlais et al.) examines various distance education methods, the current context--business and/or education--in which they are used, and the providers. "Issues in Using Managers as Instructors: The Qualitative Perspective" (Andrea D. Ellinger et al.) examines the issues that confront managers who adopt the role of instructor and the seven themes that emerged from the study: the configuration of the innovation (Manager-as-Instructor approach); roles and responsibilities of managers or role fit; time; concerns about adequacy to teach; manager-participant relationships; outcomes; and idea and alternatives. "Training Delivery Problems and Solutions" (Sandra K. Falkman, Richard A. Swanson) reports a study that surveyed trainers to identify common training delivery problems they experienced as novice trainers and then surveyed expert trainers to present successful strategies for dealing with the 12 training delivery problems. Expert solutions are provided for these problems: fear; credibility; personal experiences; difficult learners; participation; timing; adjust instruction; questions; feedback; media, materials, and facilities; openings and closing; and dependence on notes. Papers contain references. (YLB)
