Developing Technical Training Second Edition A Structured Approach for Developing Classroom and Computer-Based Instructional Materials By Ruth Colvin Clark, EdD

The goal of this second edition of Developing Technical Training is the same as it was ten years ago: to provide a structured, research-based methodology for the development of instructional materials that most effectively convert information to knowledge for delivery via workbook for classroom training and via computer for technological delivery. But in the ten years since the first writing of Developing Technical Training, much as changed in technology-driven instruction.

The most dramatic differences are advances in technological delivery capabilities. Ten years ago most computer training was mainframe delivered. It was limited to text and to very simple keyboard graphics. Colors were minimal and there was no sound or animation. Simulations consisted of procedural demonstrations on the use of mainframe computer systems. Today, all that has changed. Virtually all the computer examples in the book have been updated to examples drawn from web-based training or CD-ROM.

Whether you are a technical expert or a professional trainer, this practical guide will help you use the instructional strategies that will motivate your learners. By using the systematic process addressed in the book, trainers and performance technologists can ensure positive learning outcomes that will produce superior bottom-line results for your organization.

"Ruth has a special gift to be able to interpret these complex ideas in a simple, straightforward way." David Merrill -- International Society for Performance Improvement www.ispi.orgAcademics often have difficulty communicating their theories, research findings, and methods. Ruth Clark has a special gift to be able to interpret these complex ideas in a simple, straightforward way that is easily grasped and applied by practicing instructional designers. Those who apply the guidelines in Developing Technical Training wil lfind that their instruction is far more effective. -- M. David Merrill, Professor, Utah State University This text is an exceptional resource for instructional systems designers to use in developing effective technical training. Filled with detailed descriptions of instructional methods, practical applications, great examples, and up-to-date graphics, this book is easy to read. Yet, Dr. Clark has thoroughly grounded her practical advice in sophisticated methods and cognitive learning research. This is a "must read" for anyone involved in developing training.

Review Text

  • By ShelbyMama on October 20, 2007

    Dr. Clark's book is an easy-to-read guide on how to design training according to the five types of content: procedures, factual information, concepts, processes and principles. She clearly defines each type and then explains to the reader how to design learning based on the "remember level" (memorization by learner) and the "apply level" (application by learner). Dr. Clark gives examples on how to assess each type of content and guides the reader through each chapter with a "visual" - a chart which she fills in as the reader progresses through the book.One of the instructional designers at our college is leaving to head the implementation of an online program at another college. I bought her this book as a going-away gift because it is an essential tool for every one who designs learning. This resource should be in every college's, instructional designer's and instructor's library. It is well worth the price.

    I've been using Dr. Clark's method of instructional design since 1992 to develop training materials targeted at highly-skilled software engineers. Again and again, students have commented on the way these course materials are not only helpful during class, but also later as reference materials when they're trying to apply what they've learned.Be warned: Developing these kinds of "information mapped" training materials requires more effort than simply throwing together some PowerPoint slides with a few bullet items. But trust me, your students will thank you.

    Dr. Clark's instructional methods in this book describe five different areas: facts, concepts, processes, procedures and principles of technical training. It summarizes and applies current research that illustrates instructional strategies allowing instructional designers to better grasp these training processes. I liked the way she applied these instructional methods in a clear-cut, uncomplicated way throughout the book.

    This book provides all the instructional design details for the five content types. It describes the what and why of instructional design and describes how to display it on paper and a computer screen. There is a full chapter dedicated to CBT design. I am recommending this book as required reading for all our trainers.
