Toward Wearable Devices for Multiteam Systems Learning
This chapter provides an overview of an exploratory case study involving a multiteam system in the fire and rescue emergency context incorporating human sensor analytics (e.g., proximity sensors) and other data sources to reveal important insights on within- and between-team learning and training. Incorporating a design research approach, the case study consisting of two live simulation scenarios that informed the design and development of a wearable technology-based system targeted to capture team-based behavior in the live simulation and visualize it during the debriefing session immediately following to potentially inform within- and cross-team behavior from a multiteam systems perspective informed by theory and practice.
