Abstract : The purpose of this research was to compare a current instructional approach used in one course, C510: Strategic, Operational, and Joint Environments, of the Command and General Staff Officer Course (COSOC) to an alternative instructional approach derived from the Problem-Based learning (PBL) approach. Specifically, this research sought to determine if: (1) a cued retrieval instructional strategy in a problem oriented instructional situation would foster encoding specificity, hence, retention; and, (2) a focus on identification of learning issues by participants would foster an orientation to self-directed, continuing learning.
