Abstract

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 undergone several changes to include changing the focus to the development of a Program of Instruction (POI) for Combat Lifesaver Skills (CLS). The new scope of work which has been followed for the past year includes the completion of the POI as well as the integration of the Personal Response System (PRS) into the visual presentations used for teaching the CLS course, a process which mandated a complete structural revision of the existing visual presentations. Additionally, the project is seeing the final stages of the creation of two eModules to supplement existing learning materials and the newly created POI.
