Abstract:The module has three parts. The Module Text is made up of six self-instructional units, each of which deals with a particular aspect of the training design process. These units are held together conceptually by a “model” of the training process, which we call a Discrepancy Model. The model, and indeed all of the ideas in this Text flow from the idea that training should be based on observable job performance problems—or performance discrepancies. This Module Text may be used alone or in conjunction with other components of the total module package. The Module Text is supported by a separate Exercise Book, which contains a number of structure group and individual practice exercises designed to be used along with the Text. These exercises are important to full achievement of module objectives, and the authors encourage individuals to complete these supplementary exercises. When the module is used with group learning situation, these exercises become an integral part of the total module learning experience. The third component of the total module is a Module Manager’s Guide. This Guide contains suggested schedules, suggestions of adaptation, supplementary materials, lesson plans, and pre- and post-evaluations for the individual who will implement the module with a learning group.
