Abstract : This report describes a 6-hour in-service training program for Navy instructors. The instructional method used is a highly structured peer group discussion designed to elicit a wide range of comments describing instructors' interactions with students. This process identifies good and poor practices and results in a group consensus regarding the most desirable instructor behavior. The views of individuals that coincide with the consensus are reinforced, while those individuals whose views differ often decide to adopt the constructive model of respected peers. Four topics--Navy training goals, academic remediation, motivation, and attitudes--are addressed in the form of discussion questions. Common responses are provided to help the discussion leader evaluate progress and vary the conduct of the discussion to achieve the program objectives.
