Where were you in 1962? We took a quick survey here at TrendSpotters Central to answer that question. Roger was working at Teaching Machines Inc. in Albuquerque, New Mexico, while he figured out where to go to college and what to study. Carol was in her junior year at Bayside High School in New York City. She had never heard of human performance technology (HPT) or performance improvement.
Our guest this month is Dick Clark, CPT, EdD, professor of Educational Psychology and Technology, and clinical research professor of Surgery at the University of California Rossier School of Education.
At TrendSpotters Central, we continue to revisit established models and tools that practitioners have relied on over time to learn how their originators have adapted them to the changing workplace.
