Analyzed performance issues related to implementation of the 3M (maintenance, material, and management) system. Designed and developed suite of interventions to address root causes behind performance issues.
Foreign Language Education
Researched and analyzed foreign language learning (FLL) sustainment and enhancement instruction using distributed learning. Recommended best practices for acquisition of high levels of proficiency of language development.
Designed and developed Interactive Electronic Technical Publications (IETP) for the AN/TPQ-50 Lightweight Counter-Mortar Radar (LCMR).
Determined how theme-based training could lead to improvement in cognitive skills and expert thinking patterns of leaders and battlestaff through cognitive task and extensive additional analysis. Developed training methodology integrating multi-media vignettes enabling self-evaluation complete with automated coaching.
Training Brain Operations Center (TBOC)
Helped frame and replicate the operational environment (OE) across all TRADOC lines of operation including strategic planning, capability and technology integration, and effectiveness assessment. Provided intelligence analysis mobile training team expertise.
Developed detailed architecture for LVC-IA exercise control system and MCS stimulation capability. Created a robust training capability providing the option for on-site or remote training, automated tracking, reporting and analysis of student performance, and enable efficient updates to the curriculum to meet evolving requirements.
Must be opened in Internet Explorer
Reserve Life is a cross-platform decision making game with epic consequences. Designed for the Army Reserve Medical Command (AR-MEDCOM,) players are be able to jump right into relevant scenarios and play as an Army Reservist to discover what living life like a Reservist really means. Your character is thrown into the world of Reservia, where every choice is important. Balance relationships, control your emotions and make real-world decisions that can impact your character and either build their quality of life, or destroy it.
Completed Front-End Analysis (FEA) and developed web-based and server-based IMI for learning in both synchronous and asynchronous modes.
