"This research product presents a procedure that can be followed to develop small group focused training exercises. It is a specific application of the methodology contained in the Guide to Development of Structured Simulation-Based Training, published by API in 1997. Both that guide and this product are based on work performed under the aspices of the Army Research Institute (ARI) and the Force XXI Training Program. The development effort entitled Combined Arms Operations at Brigade Level, Realistically Achieved Through Simulation (known as COBRAS), resulted in construction of trainign support packages (TSPs) for large scale exercises and for small group vignettes. This product contains examples and explanations that specifically address the construction and evaluation of small group structured exercises. It addresses the use of simulation (live, virtual, and constructive) and discusses the advantages and disadvantages of the uses of simulation for small group exercises."--P.i.

"The purpose of this paper is to describe a multimedia presentation of the background information needed to participate in a COBRAS vignette staff training exercise. Vignette exercises provide opportunities for brigade staffs to practice selected aspects of the planning and execution of heavy armored brigade missions. Because each exercise targets a different staff process, participants must become acquainted with the background scenario that provides the context for the activities they will practice. Training materials originally developed for the presentation of this background information were paper-based. To the detriment of the exercise, participants have had a tendency to avoid reading these materials. Multimedia may provide a more stimulating and efficient delivery method, but only if it is well designed. The outline of a multimedia presentation for one of the vignettes is developed using guidelines concerning the structure of the information being presented, sensory modalities suited to types of information, and principles of intrinsic motivation. The paper recommends testing the effectiveness of multimedia for delivering this type of training information."--DTIC.

Discover how to improve classroom instruction with vignette analysis, an engaging and relevant form of professional development. The book features a wide variety of vignettes—from across 6–12 content areas such as English language arts, math, science, and social studies—designed to help teachers spot practices they like (or don’t like) and help them to connect the teaching practices described to well-established and research-supported frameworks. Each vignette is followed by an analysis of the lesson, which includes questions, prompts, and ideas of how to continue the conversation for pre- and in-service teachers as well as teacher educators on an individual basis, small groups, or as a class.

This revision of Bloom's taxonomy is designed to help teachers understand and implement standards-based curriculums. Cognitive psychologists, curriculum specialists, teacher educators, and researchers have developed a two-dimensional framework, focusing on knowledge and cognitive processes. In combination, these two define what students are expected tolearn in school. Like no other text, it explores curriculums from three unique perspectives-cognitive psychologists (learning emphasis), curriculum specialists and teacher educators (C&I emphasis), and measurement and assessment experts (assessment emphasis). This "revisited" framework allows you to connect learning in all areas of curriculum. Educators, or others interested in Educational Psychology or Educational Methods for grades K-12.

The papers in this volume are contributed by leading academicians and practitioners from all over the world. They cover a wide variety of strategic and operational issues associated with developing and implementing technological change for increasing the competitiveness of the firm. The diversity of their topics and approaches clearly reflects the evolving nature of production economics, both as a practical and a theoretical field. The contributions reflect the changes in business forces and organizational and methodological responses in which the authors have been involved. About half of the papers deal directly or indirectly with the impact of business forces on production planning and control information systems, technology transfer, and investment and financial planning. The remaining papers present the new trends in organizational responses. Familiar topics are also included, such as manufacturing flexibility and productivity, inventory policies, materials management, process planning and so on.
