Shirley C Sonesh UCF

visit author page

Dr. Sonesh is a post-doctoral research associate at the Institute for Simulation and Training (IST) at the University of Central Florida (UCF). Before joining the teams and training lab at IST, she conducted research on expatriate assignments and the resulting socialization, career capital gains, and knowledge transfer that occur in the international context. Currently, Shirley is continuing to pursue expatriate research in addition to working on teamwork and training research in the medical domain. In specific, Dr. Sonesh is working on investigating clinical decision making and developing training for rapid response teams in the obstetrics unit to improve team decision making, team coordination, and ultimately patient safety. Other research interests include reducing medication error in EMS contexts, the use of adaptive team tutoring, responses to organizational change, coaching, and augmented reality for medical training; this work is funded by ARL, SHRM, NSF, FFMJUA, among others.

Abstract

SMARTER Teamwork: System for Management, Assessment, Research, Training, Education, and Remediation for TeamworkThe rapid adoption of Team-Maker and the Comprehensive Assessment of Team MemberEffectiveness (CATME) tools for team formation and peer evaluation make it possible to extendtheir success to have a significant impact on the development of team skills in higher education.The web-based systems have been used by more than 110,000 students of more than 2400faculty at more than 500 institutions internationally—the figure below shows the growth of theuser base. 2400 The system has had 113,373 unique student users.  2200 Fitted curves are third order. 2000 1800 Faculty  and staff 1600 1400 1200 Number of 1000 users 800 Institutions 600 400 Aug Oct. 2005 2012 200 0 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Years since  software was releasedThis paper and its accompanying poster will describe strategies for broadening the scope of thosetools into a complete system for the management of teamwork in undergraduate education. TheSystem for the Management, Assessment, Research, Training, Education, and Remediation ofTeamwork (SMARTER Teamwork) has three specific goals: 1) to equip students to work inteams by providing them with training and feedback, 2) to equip faculty to manage student teamsby providing them with information and tools to facilitate best practices, and 3) to equipresearchers to understand teams by broadening the system’s capabilities to collect additionaltypes of data so that a wider range of research questions can be studied through a secureresearcher interface. The three goals of the project support each other in hierarchical fashion:research informs faculty practice, faculty determine the students’ experience, which, if wellmanaged based on research findings, equips students to work in teams. Our strategies forachieving these goals are based on a well-accepted training model that has five elements:information, demonstration, practice, feedback, and remediation.The paper that will be submitted and the poster presented at the conference will focus on newfeatures of the system, the development of training materials, and the deployment of a partnerwebsite that shares information about the SMARTER tools for teamwork and provides basicinformation about teamwork and team management.
