Exploring the Process of Adult Computer Software Training Using Andragogy, Situated Cognition, and a Minimalist Approach
Hurt, Andrew C.
Online Submission, Paper presented at the International Research Conference in the Americas of the Academy of Human Resource Development (Indianapolis, IN, Feb 28-Mar 4, 2007)
With technology advances, computer software becomes increasingly difficult to learn. Adults often rely on software training to keep abreast of these changes. Instructor-led software training is frequently used to teach adults new software skills; however there is limited research regarding the best practices in adult computer software training. This paper looks at how software trainers incorporate the adult learning theories of andragogy, situated cognition, and the minimalist training approach into adult computer software training.
