Widely used in the adult training world
Great emphasis is placed on the instructional materials to achieve this result. Poor performance = inadequate instruction
Self-paced, repeated practice (if needed) of skills net yet mastered that includes feedback about the quality of their performance

Design training first – delivery method second.
