Abstract : At the educational institution the NROTC instructor is given faculty status in a department of naval science and teaches accredited courses. Thus, the officer needs appropriate academic training to round out operational expertise in preparation for the teaching role. The Navy has responded to this need by providing the officer with a special training program, the NROTC Instructors' Seminar. The Seminar is more than a 'how to teach' program. It recognizes the reality of the multi-dimensional responsibilities of the NROTC instructor as teacher, counselor, academic advisor, program administrator, and role-model. The Seminar is structured into an intense two-week package which addresses each of these facets and attempts to build or enhance appropriate skills. (Author)
