Abstract:

With advances in simulation technology, simulators are increasingly used as a medium for training and instruction. This report contains a description of a proposal for a research project aimed at the development of a generic didactic model for training simulators notably as it applies to learning requisite skills for performing high-performance tasks. A didactic model specifies the relation between learning, and training and instruction factors. The development of such a model is motivated by the need to control training and instruction factors in research on simulator fidelity, the need to assess the benefit of training simulators, e.g., relative to other training media, and the need for developing more efficient instructional systems to support simulator-based training and instruction. For several reasons, it is proposed to focus the empirical work on tutoring aspects associated with car driving skills.
