The attached document outlines the ‘matrix of instructional strategies’ recommended by TRADOC, the Training and Doctrine Command of the US Army, published in 2011.
The document includes:
- Outline of instructional method;
- Optimal group size;
- Instructor role(s);
- Methods (the how);
- Interactivity level;
- Devices (e.g. blogs, facebook, PPT etc);
- Meta-tags; and
- Other useful information.
The 2011 version has been updated to incorporate elearning where possible, and is a good foundation point for new instructors (as well as possibly being a refresher for veteran instructors).
