Computer Skills

Armstrong, A and Alice McEhone, Computer Skills, A Training and Development Handbook, ASTD and McGraw Hill, Third Edition, copyright 1987, pp. 697-716.

Abstract: 

The chapter focuses on computer education for adults. Adult learners are unusual subjects, bringing to the learning climate their fully formed prejudices and a great variety of experience, motivation, ability, and need. Computer education instructional designers, faculties, and trainers, should structure programs to capitalize on this wide range of experience by creating curricula that allow each learner to be self-directed. Designers, trainers, and faculties should also be keenly aware that adults learn best when the learning environment is supportive. Strategies for designing and delivering computer education are covered in the chapter.
