AICC Survey on Training Evaluation and Technology Trends

In its continuing quest to keep its “finger on the pulse” of the aviation training community, the AICC announces a new survey on Training Evaluation and Technology Trends.

So, what is your position on learning from a virtual experience as opposed to a physical one? Can someone learn to maintain an aircraft in a virtual world, or is “getting your hands dirty” a necessary part of the learning process? Or, how do you feel about the claim that the younger generation “learns differently” than the baby boomers? These are two of the issues on which the AICC seeks your feedback and opinion.

Of course, one source of information on questions such as these is findings from training research. So, part of our survey addresses the training evaluation processes and approaches that you use, as well as the technologies and interventions you have studied.

With only 11 questions, this survey is one you can probably complete over your coffee break. But if you try to complete it by getting consensus from a group of your training experts, it may take quite a bit longer!

As always, the AICC appreciates your help in this survey on training evaluation approaches and technology trends and issues. Group summary results will be available on the AICC website in the near future.

Take the survey:
