T&D: Guidance Via Directory, Ensampler or Query

Performance-Based Instruction Leads to Performance

And sometimes to Learning.

Slide1

In their Praxis Reports from September-October 1970 – Geary Rummler and Tom Gilbert presented their approach to what nowadays is called Performance Support or Workflow Learning. They called it Guidance – going back into the 1960s.

So – what’s Old – is New again.

They articulated 3 types of Guidance:

  • The Directory
  • The Ensampler
  • The Query
