- Publish Date: 2003-11-28
- Binding: Hardcover
The aviation teaching environment is fairly unique and combines both traditional and non-traditional teaching environments. There are presently few books that address adult learning principles and teaching strategies relevant to the aviation context. Furthermore, aviation education has not generally benefited from many of the developments made in the field of education. This timely book: - facilitates the development of knowledge and skills necessary to conduct effective instruction and training within the aviation context; - develops an awareness of critical issues that should be of concern to aviation educators and trainers; - provides aviation education and trainers with a variety of teaching strategies that can be effective in the development of essential skills in aviation professionals. The readership for this book includes university students who want to become instructors, as well as industry personnel who are involved in any of the various domains of aviation education, from junior flight instructors to the trainer of instructors, or from training captains, or traffic controllers to crew resource management and human factors facilitators.
