2018_06_ITS Conference_AIS Standards Workshop_Exploring the Opportunities and Benefits of Standards for Adaptive Instructional Systems (AISs)
This paper describes the purpose, goals, and guiding questions for the Adaptive Instructional System (AIS) standards workshop within the 2018 Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITS) Conference Industry Track. Adaptive instructional systems (AISs) use human variability, learner goals and preferences, and other learner/team attributes along with instructional conditions to develop/select appropriate strategies (domain-independent policies) and tactics (actions). The goal of adaptive instruction is to optimize learning, performance, retention, and the transfer of skills between training environments and the work or operational environment where the skills learned during training are to be applied. The Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Learning Technologies Standards Committee (LTSC) established a study group in December 2017 to evaluate the efficacy of AIS standards and the authors of this paper proposed this workshop (and several others) to inform stakeholders and solicit their participation.
The interaction with stakeholders at the ITS conference will be through the ideas presented in paper presentations and via an expert panel composed of the authors of this paper and other authors in this workshop.
