Our philosophy at Entelechy is to start at the end and work backwards; training should simulate and support on-the-job performance as much as possible. At the same time, it is important that we as training designers create training that is both efficient and effective. The goal of training should be to simplify information and skills enabling learners to shorten their learning curve and increase their overall capabilities.
This eGuide outlines the five content types (facts, concepts, processes, procedures, and principles), based on a model developed by Dr. M. David Merrill at the University of Utah. We also explore the most effective and efficient ways to teach each content type. Ultimately, the model is equally effective for instructor-led training as it is for web-based or self-paced training, making it incredibly powerful when developing training programs.
