I/ITSEC is an annual event held in Orlando, Florida, that brings together the worlds of the Armed Services, academia, private companies, and government agencies to improve training and education programs. Here are some areas of expertise we look forward to writing about for this year’s conference:
“Development of a Cognitive Competency Model using a Hybrid Methodology”
This paper by Iris Rivera and Bill Ross will focus on how to guide the development of training interventions using competency models.
“Squad Leader Mastery: A Model Underlying Cognitive Readiness Interventions”
Written by Jennifer Phillips, Iris Rivera, Karol Ross, and Kenneth Knarr, this paper will focus on how to harness the vast amounts of expertise from a decade of combat to instantiate training and assessment strategies that accelerate the development of small unit leader decision expertise.
“Small Unit Decision Making Assessment Battery”
Co-authors Jennifer Vogel-Walcutt and Kenneth Knarr take a look at usable, reliable, and valid metrics that assess the targeted skills to train cognitive readiness.
This summer, papers will be reviewed for final acceptance to be presented and/or published. Stay tuned for further updates on which CPG findings you can learn about this fall at I/ITSEC 2013!
