2018 Total Learning Architecture Final Report

2019; Smith, Brent; Gordon, Jerry

The Total Learning Architecture (TLA) program sponsored by the ADL Initiative seeks to develop a set of policy and standards defining the process for developing a learning ecology, where multiple services and learning opportunities (of various modalities and points of delivery) can be managed in an integrated environment. The TLA serves to: 1) shift from a course-centric focus to a learner-centric focus, where competencies managed more efficiently (for savings in cost and schedule) and effectively for the learner’s professional development path; 2) provide the opportunities for data interoperability between implementations to aid in enterprise-wide decision support analysis and in reuse of competency and content between agencies, and; 3) capture all experiences, including on-the-job training (OJT), use of performance support and job aids, simulation, distributed learning, and traditional classroom learning to provide a more rounded portrait of personnel capability and aptitude to aid in the team building and detailing process.
