Suchan, James E.
MetadataShow full item record
This research analyzes the design characteristics and organizational systems factors that should be addressed by program managers in the Navy Bureau of Medicine and Surgery (BUMED) for the development of network-based instruction (NBI). BUMED's development of NBI modules for Medical Department executives represents a radical departure from the form and context of graduate education that these busy professions have experienced in the past. Design characteristics and systems factors must be addressed to ensure that NBI implementation is handled strategically. Many other innovations in instructional technology have failed because they have not considered the fit between the technology and the learners, tasks, and the organization. These factors should be addressed initially in the design of instruction, and ultimately in beta testing. Recommendations of this research focus on those actions that NBI subject matter experts and systems designers can take to ensure that executives are fully engaged in the learning experience. As a result, they will complete the NBI courses, perceive them as valuable, and acquire knowledge, skills, and abilities that will contribute to enhanced job performance.
