Camber uses a systems approach model in its training and educational programs as opposed to viewing education and training as a sum of isolated parts. The model addresses instruction as an entire system, focusing on the interrelationship between context, content, learning and instruction. Components such as the instructor, learners, materials, instructional activities, delivery system, and learning and performance environments interact with each other and work together to bring about the desired student learning outcomes. The systems model has the following major steps:
- Identify Instructional Goal(s): goal statement describes a skill, knowledge or attitude that a learner(s) will be expected to acquire;
- Conduct Instructional Analysis: Identify what a learner must recall and identify what learner must be able to do to perform particular task
- Analyze Learners and Contexts: Identify general characteristics of the target audience including prior skills, prior experience, and basic demographics; identify characteristics directly related to the skill to be taught; and perform analysis of the performance and learning settings.
- Write Education and training Performance Objectives: Objectives consists of a description of the behavior, the condition and criteria. The component of an objective that describes the criteria that will be used to judge the learner's performance.
- Develop Assessment Instruments: Purpose of entry behavior testing, purpose of pretesting, purpose of post testing, purpose of practice items/practice problems
- Develop Education and training Strategy: Pre-instructional activities, content presentation, Learner participation, assessment
- Design, develop and select Instructional Materials
- Design and Conduct Formative Evaluation of Instruction: Identify areas of the instructional materials that need improvement.
- Revise Instruction: Take lessons learned from training evaluation and update training and education programs using best practices.
