The purpose of this volume is to help educators and training developers to improve the quality of their instruction. Unlike other books, which have appeared so far, this volume is not limited to a particular theoretical position. Nor is it like many of the instructional design texts, which ignore the learning literature. Rather, it draws upon any and all of those research-based principles regardless of learning theory, which suggest heuristics to guide instructional strategies. The approach of the authors is unique in that they develop a framework or model taxonomy for tasks, through which the principles of learning can be related to particular learning processes, suggesting distinctive strategies for specific instructional tasks. The authors present a four-stage model that includes acquisition, automaticity, near term transfer, and far term transfer.

He has taught full- time at Denison University, and part-time at, George Washington University, the University of Maryland, and Trinity College in Connecticut. He has a varied and rich experience base spanning over 36 years of research, development, and management in the areas of experimental design, individualized instruction, computer-administered instruction, technology transfer, distance learning, and evaluation. In these areas of expertise, he has given many talks, nationally and internationally, published numerous articles and seven books. He was principal investigator for a National Science Foundation grant, which resulted in his co-authoring, (with colleagues B. Hunter, C. Kastner, and M. Rubin) Learning Alternatives in U.S. Education: Where student and computer meet. Dr. Seidel organized, then conducted an educational technology conference, and subsequently edited (with M. Rubin) a book, Computers and Communication, based on the findings from the conference. The next book, Computer Literacy, was edited by Dr. Seidel, R. Anderson, and B. Hunter. He has also managed groups of research personnel in both the private sector and in government, and has served many years as an advisor to NATO for the implementation of advanced technologies. As part of his NATO work, Dr. Seidel served as senior editor and contributed chapters to four books dealing with the use of technology in education and training.

Her overall focus has been on cognition and motivation in classroom settings. In that regard, she has a number of recent publications in educational psychology journals, and book chapters, dealing with techniques for enhancing motivation and cognitive development in the field of Reading. Allyson Kett is presently completing her work towards a Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology from the American School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University, Washington D.C., and is a National Consortium Research Fellow at the U.S. Army Research Institute in Arlington, VA.
