NTSA Webinar Series

Transforming DoD’s Learning Infrastructure

August 26, 2020 • 11:00 am - 12:00 pm ET


NTSA Webinar Series

In July 2018, the Reform Management Group (senior Pentagon committee) approved the Enterprise Digital Learning Modernization (EDLM) initiative, a sweeping reform meant to improve DoD’s digital learning system. The effort includes two major goals: First, improve the way DoD buys and maintains digital learning software and services, and second, modernize its digital learning systems by implementing federated digital architectures and using enterprise-wide data-driven methods.

This webinar will feature the EDLM Executive Steering Committee, which includes senior executives who represent the military, civilian, and DoD intel training and education areas, as well as the DoD Chief Management Office, which is ultimately responsible for business reforms and enterprise systems.

This webinar will be moderated by Dr. Sae Schatz, Ph.D., Director of the Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) Initiative. Dr. Schatz is an applied human–systems scientist, with an emphasis on human cognition and learning, instructional technologies, adaptive systems, human performance assessment, and modeling and simulation.

The EDLM initiative has broad impacts—from DoD training and education organizations to technology vendors. This webinar should have broad appeal to anyone working in or around the DoD instructional technologies community.
