Development of a P.O.I. and a Blended Learning Ecology for use in Combat Lifesaver Skills Training for the Army
The primary purpose of the project, as originally conceived, was to design and implement a series of applied research studies to validate the effectiveness of a blended learning ecology in the teaching of life saving medical skills to US Army combat military personnel. The project has since undergone several changes to include changing the focus to the development of a Program of Instruction (POI) for Combat Lifesaver Skills (CLS). Additionally, the CLS course content was integrated with Personal Response Systems (PRS) to promote the learning outcomes outlined in the POI, and 2 eLearning Modules were created to further reinforce content. In the last year, the research component of the project was completed, with samples of trainees taken at Fort Indiantown Gap in Pennsylvania, and the team is moving forward with presenting these research results and preparing for a publication.
