An innovative programme to teach postgraduate students studying for a Diploma in Personnel Management the skills of creating computer‐based training material is described. Key features of the adopted teaching/learning strategy are illustrated and issues and implications which have emerged thus far are highlighted. The case for inclusion in the teaching programme, the authors believe, does not rest solely on the assumption that personnel and training officers will increasingly require skills of designing a computer‐based training material. Assessed learning outcomes together with an evaluation of student views suggest a value to the teaching programme over and above the specifically stated objectives.
