Robert M. Gagné
Robert M. Gagné (1916–2002) is best known for his "Conditions of Learning". Gagné pioneered the science of instruction during WWII for the air force with pilot training. Later he went on to develop a series of studies and works that helped codify what is considered to be 'good instruction' today. He also was involved in applying concepts of instructional theory to the design of computer based training and multimedia based learning.
A major contribution to the theory of instruction was the model "Nine Events of Instruction".
