ORLANDO – The National Training and Simulation Association (NTSA) recognized StrataGem for Hampton University for excellence in human-centered training today. NTSA awarded its Modeling and Simulation award/Education and Human Performance recognition to Rigil and Hampton University for collaborating to advance learning for future air traffic controllers.
Following StrataGem’s introduction into Hampton University, air traffic control instructors saw an increase in average test scores to 97.2%, up 10 percent from its previous five-year average. Hampton University extended the use of the platform into five different courses in its Air Traffic – Collegiate Training (AT-CTI) program. StrataGem continues to demonstrate efficacy as an aid toward achieving Hampton University’s desired goals and benchmarks.
StrataGem provides educators with a platform to develop competitive, customizable games that reinforce information covered in the classroom. Its Basic and Advanced Vectoring games were particularly effective in helping students at Hampton University who had no prior air traffic control experience with retaining foundational information for their studies.
Each year at the Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation, and Education Conference (I/TSEC), NTSA distributes awards in four categories: Lifetime Achievement, Training and Simulation, Acquisition and Analysis, and Education/Human Performance.
