Each instructor conducting a training session should follow
these guidelines to ensure that instructional consistency occurs
each week. Our learning approach is based on learning theory
and instructional strategies to help deliver instruction in a well
planned and meaningful way.
All instructors should keep Gagne's Nine Events of Instruction
in mind when delivering instruction.
Instructional Event -
Internal Mental Process
1. Gain attention -
Stimuli activates receptors
2. Inform learners of objectives -
Creates level of expectation for learning
3. Stimulate recall of prior learning -
Retrieval and activation of short-term memory
4. Present the content -
Selective perception of content
5. Provide "learning guidance" -
Semantic encoding for storage long-term memory
6. Elicit performance (practice) -
Responds to questions to enhance encoding and verification
7. Provide feedback -
Reinforcement and assessment of correct performance
8. Assess performance -
Retrieval and reinforcement of content as final evaluation -
9. Enhance retention and transfer to the job -
Retrieval and generalization of learned skill to new situation
Class will consist of the following act ivies:
When teaching syntax and structure, use anchored instruction.
a big picture view of the syntax then decompose the big picture.
Use examples, samples etc.
- Engage the student by either giving them a sample and have
them explain what they thing will occur or have them apply the
or stricter to in a problem form.
Al way make an effort to end each learning session with either
an individual or group projects.
