15 minute Video excerpt from 2008 – Dick Clark discussing USC’s CCT’s research projects, products and some results about Cognitive Task Analysis (CTA) – and commenting that Subject Matter Experts can miss up to 70% of what a novice really needs to perform because most SMEs are on automatic pilot in their performance.
And about research on training for dealing with other cultures and how to train people in the Army – avatars trying to date others’ avatars is the interesting twist to this approach. And on Guided Experiential Learning (GEL).
And about SLT – Situational Leadership Theory. And about SOP – Sense of Presence – regarding the authenticity of training/learning. Do you learn more? Also known as the “suspension of disbelief.” And about “See One – Do One – Teach One” used in training surgeons – and after conducting a CTA – combined GEL with CTA.
