Hello! One suggestion off the top of my head is:
Making CBT Happen: Prescriptions for Successful Implementation of
Computer-Based Training in your Organization by Gloria Gery
Diane Gayeski also has some great books. You can find both of these authors
and their books on amazon.com.
Unfortunately, I'm in the middle of a move and all my books are packed
away. I can't believe I can't think of these things off the top of my head!
CBT was my life for quite a while! Some other areas to consider exploring
are instructional design (check out Dick and Carey's book for a good, basic
introduction) and performance support (Gloria Gery also covers this).
Hope this is helpful!
