Research and development of an instructional system : teaching security supervisors in the Canadian Forces
AbstractConstraints on government spending prevent Unit Security Supervisors from attending the Unit Security Supervisor Course. To overcome this difficulty, a highly structured remote training package was developed by following a three phase Research and Development model. A needs assessment surveyed 80 course graduates to determine training objectives based on their actual duties. A systems approach to course design was used to produce in Instructor's Manual for optimizing performance oriented training. The package was formatively evaluated by content experts and instructional design experts. A field trial investigated the accuracy of content, the adequacy of instructional design decisions, and learner attitudes toward the courseware and the implementation of the course. Generally, this Research and Development Model was deemed to be a useful tool for course development but rather inflexible when it came to adjusting to unexpected events.
