This book develops a theoretical, historical and empirical framework for making decisions about training design. The main question asks how close simulations must be to real-life situations to achieve effective training. The degree of correspondence between simulation and real circumstances is known as fidelity. The framework developed by the authors uses the concept of fidelity to help specify the characteristics of training media. The framework will help training developers by providing a different focus on their immediate concerns (such as engineering design or curriculum development) and a broad concern with the fidelity of the total training system. Parts of the book review the influence of the latest technological advancements on the evolution of training systems.
