Abstract and Keywords
Military psychologists have made significant contributions to training methods and media design. The introduction of a systems approach to training has brought order to the system. Development of individual training methods for both the schoolhouse and distance education and training have allowed for continuing skill development over the course of a career. Engagement simulation technology and the After Action Review (AAR) process brought realism and an effective way to discuss lessons learned. Simulator systems such as Simulator Network (SIMNET), Close Combat Tactical Trainer (CCTT), and Distributed Mission Operations (DMO) have lowered the cost of training, while still exposing trainees to the full complexities of combat without the associated danger. Today’s emphasis on cognitive tasks and decision making takes training to the next level from knowing “how to” to knowing “when and where to.” Future work for military psychologists will include automating training processes and developing training methods to support the teaching of cultural adaptation.
