ADL’s Sae Schatz is seen here giving her tutorial, ” “Elevate Your Instruction: Practical Tactics to Maximize Military Learning.” She won best tutorial this year.
Months of hard work for the ADL Team paid off this year at I/ITSEC with a strong booth presence, various papers, the Virtual World Sandbox PlugFest Activity, and Partnership Lab and DoD meetings fostering collaborations amongst our stakeholders. In addition, ADL was recognized for the top two tutorials.
Dr. Elaine Raybourn received second best tutorial for her work, “Transmedia Learning in the Wild: Supporting Military Training Through Story-driven Engagement” which discusses transmedia learning design for informal learning and the open source software approaches to track learner progress of informal learning.
Schatz summarized the research on instructor effectiveness, sharing that the most important factor affecting student learning is the teacher. She provided attendees the knowledge to promote and defend the value of instructor development, and explained that in order to increase instructional quality, it was important to focus on and use learning science.
Dr. Elaine Raybourn is recognized at this year’s I/ITSEC for her tutorial, “Transmedia Learning in the Wild: Supporting Military Training Through Story-driven Engagement,” which earned second place.
Learning science involves skills and dedication of instructors, instructional strategies, specific activities within the instructional process (i.e., tactics), and assessments. Schatz explained all of these factors and provided attendees with practical examples that they could use immediately.
Prior to joining ADL Initiative, Schatz worked in academia, as an assistant professor at the University of Central Florida, and led the authorship and execution of the Marine Corps’ “Making Good Instructors Great” course, both of which contributed to her passion for this topic. “It was an eye-opening experience,” Schatz said. “Learning science is a relatively easy way to develop quality instructors and multiply the impact of training; however, it is under-emphasized.”
