Abstract:

instructional design and SCORM-compliant web-based distance learning infrastructure to create a richer learning environment that is believable, adaptable and easily accessible. Interactive Pedagogical Drama is an instructional environment where "the learning of skills is through compelling interactive stories". In order to construct an IPD-inspired leadership training environment, we propose to create the following: intelligent agent-based infrastructure that supports modeling of believable role-playing characters; training scenario that has a good story structure focusing on developing and assessing leadership abilities, with a strong narrative drive and is believable to the learners training on it; instructional design that leverages the adaptability that IPD provides and an infrastructure that combines real-time simulations with web-based learning. We will have 4 objectives: (1) Use IAI's intelligent agent modeling infrastructure, MAGIC, for creating role-playing characters in adaptable stories. (2) Modify/adapt a crowd-behavior simulation to create leadership training scenarios that provides domain for instruction. (3) Use IAI's SITA infrastructure for integrating adaptable story-based simulations into distance learning environments. (4) Create a training /assessment module that demonstrates the effectiveness of IPD-based instructions.
