Developing Technical Training: A Structured Approach for Developing Classroom and Computer-Based Instructional Materials , 2nd Edition
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.
