Abstract : The general purposes of this investigation were to analyze an innovative teacher training program in order to construct models that represent the instructional process, and to develop procedures for implementing the models on a computer system. The training program which provided the framework for these research goals was labeled a 'behavioral simulation' since it utilized the trainee's behavior as the most significant system component. The model that represented the behavioral simulation was implemented on a computer, and these procedures were labeled a 'system simulation.' The function of the behavioral simulation was to train prospective teachers by providing an environment which facilitated transfer to the classroom. (Author)
