Abstract:

Embedded training (ET) is the envisioned method for flexibly training an adaptive future force. Successful ET is more than the platform on which it is hosted or the realism of training exercises. Training must also be structured. IMI could be an efficient and effective means for delivering structured ET. This requires that an IMI exercise-generation tool be designed to support trainer interactivity with the product-development process. GIST and HumRRO propose to research and develop a Web-based IMI exercise-generation-tool that allows unit trainers to rapidly generate training exercises to meet diverse training objectives (TOs) yet also structure their training to develop adaptive-thinking skills. We will use the Think Like A Commander methodology to summarize diverse training objectives in terms of expert tactical-thinking themes, then use these themes to determine the generic/modifiable training content (vignette, assessment, and coaching content objects) available to the trainer. The Phase I prototype will demonstrate that indicating a TO and a trainee type will return generic/modifiable content objects that are relevant to the TO and trainee type, yet structured to focus training on the expert tactical-thinking theme(s) associated with the TO. This prototype capability will be used to evaluate the feasibility of developing a fully operational tool.
