Abstract
"The goal of this work is to develop Teamwork Training and Remote Assessment in a Networked Environment (T-TRANE), a web-enabled scenario-based teamwork skills training program for distributed teams. In Phase I, using applicable research on team theory andscenario-based team training, we developed concepts, methods, and proof-of-concept demonstrations for a distributed teamwork skills training program for emergency medical teams using a blend of web-enabled synchronous and asynchronous collaborativetechnologies. The program is comprised of a set of modules that are linked to teamwork training objectives. Each module includes a self-contained pre-brief, training exercises, and a debriefing framework that will allow the team to conduct an analysis oftheir task and teamwork processes without the requirement for an instructor to be present. In Phase II we will complete development of the program and apply the concepts and materials to a new domain. We will also develop an instructional guide that teamleaders can use for conducting meetings and training sessions when participants are not face-to-face."
