Abstract:

A variety of non-conventional instructional formats are used in Air Force technical training. Manual and computer-based approaches to self-pacing are included, as are combinations of small-group pacing, used alone or with other formats. This effort investigates instructor roles and job requirements in a wide range of non-conventional instruction NCI. A total of 99 instructors in nine Air Force technical training courses completed questionnaires concerning the percentage of time they spent performing selected roles and behaviors. They also indicated problems they experienced in the performance of these roles and behaviors. This paper presents implications of the findings for a theoretically based NCI instructor role model, for training of NCI instructors, and for the use of noninstructor personnel in selected roles and behaviors.
