Sample text

But the word "demonstration" implies some step-by-step process or skill, which the learner must acquire and then perform back on the job—and we can pretty well rule out reading or lecture as the total learning experience! 2. Psychomotor skills involve using the arms, the legs, the torso. For the mind to direct reliable performance by these parts of the body, some practice or drill seems mandatory. Psychomotor growth often relies heavily on On the Job Training (OJT), in which instructors "tell and show" the task one step at a time, learners "doing and reviewing" that step as soon as possible.

At other times the T&D manager will become aware of performance problems that remain unseen by an operating management because it is somehow "blinded" to the failure of its own staff to meet desired performance standards. Does the T&D manager take the initiative in revealing such problems? Or does the organization have to wait until the potential client grows painfully aware of the situation? Someone must make a policy statement to answer that question—and that "someone" is the T&D manager. Someone must also set scheduling policy: setting the dates and locations for programs, determining the length of the training day, deciding whether enrollments should involve trainees from many departments and locations or from homogeneous groups.

As designers or as managers of the design process, T&D managers need knowledge, experience, and a value system of learning/teaching methods. Nowadays, methodology will probably reflect a unique blend of several theories about how people (adults in particular) learn and change their on-the-job performance. Regardless of what the training content is or the methodology used, the training will not "stick" unless the designer addresses the issue of transfer of training. Transfer refers to how well the learners apply the newly acquired knowledge to their work.
