The DLH Team is looking forward to the upcoming Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation, and Education Conference (I/ITSEC) – the world’s largest modeling, simulation, and training event. The conference consists of peer-reviewed paper presentations, tutorials, special events, professional workshops, a commercial exhibit hall, a serious games competition, and STEM events. Of special importance are sessions related to defense and security.
In collaboration with our partners at Design Interactive, DLH Medical Modeling and Simulation Account Executive Frank Karluk will present on Anytime, Anywhere Adaptive XR Training. Karluk has over 30 years of experience in the medical, advancing patient care on the battlefield, directing patient care in the hospital setting, instruction, and developing curricula.
Frank has previously been invited to speak at international conferences and has been presented on behalf of the Medical/Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and high yield Explosives (CBRNE) community before the Joint Chiefs, and other high-level governmental leadership groups. Earlier in his career, he managed $90M efforts within the Defense Health Agency, Medical Simulation portfolio, and designed and implemented curriculum within the U.S. Department of State.
While virtual and augmented reality technologies are rapidly being adopted across the DoD for simulation, training, education, and operations, these component technologies are often used in isolation and require costly form factors. The benefits of these emerging technologies can be realized more fully by utilizing eXtended reality (XR), which blends a contextualized virtual environment with augmented overlays and real-world objects, on a cost-effective mobile device.
Frank’s I/ITSEC presentation will dive into the key elements of an XR training framework that leverages pedagogically based, formative assessments to infer trainee proficiency by providing insights into key drivers of adaptive, accessible training in XR; potential barriers to embodied training; value-added case studies with end-user feedback; and user-centered guidelines for designing, developing, and implementing mobile XR training systems. By the end of this tutorial, attendees will be able to implement effective techniques for adaptive, accessible XR training applications based on case studies of anytime, anywhere adaptive training being implemented for Tactical Combat Casualty Care training.
We hope you can join us at I/ITSEC on November 28 for this exciting presentation!
