Abstract : This report addesses the use of instructional media in teaching executive management education. While it is clear that using technology to support distance learning can be cost effective, this research shows that benefits may he lost for learners and instructors in highly interactive learning environments. This research proposes four learning outcomes, which are considered to be consistent with graduate education, and exarines them in the context of the instructional techniques required to support them. Media selection guidelines were then developed from the analysis. Data were collected from the developers of 32 modules of graduate-level, management education that are used for Navy medical officers. Module outcomes, instructional techniques, and the expected stability of the learning content were analyzed and the media selection guidelines were used to match each module with videoteletaaining, digitized video disc, or traditional classroom instruction.
