ACE recommendation

In the upper-division baccalaureate degree category, 3 semester hours in curriculum design.

This 6-day course introduces the Managing Officer to contemporary training issues and methods as well as the analysis and training development, delivery, and assessment process.

Students will formulate a training and executive-level presentation supporting the need for training based on analysis and outcomes. Students will conduct an analysis of a performance-based issue from their organization and formulate a plan to address the gap through training and developing a plan of instruction.

This program requires student-centered learning, where the onus for learning is on the participant. As a result, there is significant course work conducted prior to attendance, and there are evening assignments that should be completed prior to each class session.
