dc.description.abstractHoule proposed a theoretical framework of professionals' learning activities. The typology includes three modes of learning: inquiry, instruction, and .reinforcement. The purpose of this study was to test Houle’s typology among a population of clinical laboratory professionals within the state of Illinois to determine if the typology accurately describes their learning activities. An 84-item instrument was developed to measure clinical laboratory professionals' job-time activities. The instrument was shown to be valid and reliable, although modifications for future use are suggested. Oblique factor analysis resulted in support for Houle's three modes of learning. Data indicated the definitions of the modes of instruction and inquiry should be expanded to include both group-oriented and self-oriented activities. Implications and suggestions for further research are also presented.en_US
