Abstract:

Five modern training concepts--priority of the objective, quality control, the systems approach, automation, and cost-effectiveness--are outlined and evaluated for implications that might be useful in education. Training refers here to the arrangement of situations so that the student learns performances required in specific, definable situations, usually a job. Education, on the other hand, refers to preparing the individual for a wide variety of future situations, including life outside the confines of the job situation. It is clear that there are more constraints in education than in training yet these training concepts indicate the directions that educational innovation should take. Author
