Current Practice in Designing Training for Complex Skills: Implications for Design and Evaluation of ADAPT[IT].
Eseryel, Deniz; Schuver-van Blanken, Marian J.; Spector, J. Michael
ADAPT[IT] (Advanced Design Approach for Personalized Training-Interactive Tools is a European project coordinated by the Dutch National Aerospace Laboratory. The aim of ADAPT[IT] is to create and validate an effective training design methodology, based on cognitive science and leading to the integration of advanced technologies, so that the training community can better meet the many challenges of the information society of the 21st century. The effort falls within the European Commission's Information Society Technologies program. ADAPT[IT] is developing a personalized training design methodology, providing associated design tools for the efficient realization of that methodology, and validating the methodology in different training domains. The 3-year project began in February 2000, with an estimated total of 181 person-months required for completion. The effort is broken into these 9 work packages: project management; design preparation; design of the ADAPT method; development of the ADAPT tools; using ADAPT: design process evaluation; using ADAPT: design product evaluation; ADAPT[IT] revisions; standardization; and integration, dissemination, exploitation. An extensive needs assessment phase has been completed. The aim of this effort was to explore current practice in instructional design and associated with that, the needs of the training designers in order to improve their project and its products. This paper reports the needs assessment procedures and outcomes informing how they guide the efforts within the project. (Contains 16 references.) (AEF)
