  6. T&E 2025 Industry Forum Agenda • The Army Learning Model (ALM) • Current Status: • Implementation is in Phase II of three phase plan • Ph II - leverage pilot programs to test key concepts; share best practices; build strategic buy-in; and establish initial operating capability (IOC) • Ph III focuses on sustainment of ALM through adapted programs of record to achieve full operating capability (FOC) • CG, TRADOC focus for implementation: • Resourcing - models, policy, & practices • Instructional Design Capacity and Innovation • Information Technology - infrastructure and access to networked learning content • Workforce - skills development and personnel management to align with ALM principles and practices • Panel Topic: • TRADOC G3/5/7: Mr. Russ Cloy • Theme: Introduce the audience to what the Army is doing now (the Army Learning Model) and how it frames what we do next. • ALM is an Army imperative and current effort to change the approach to individual learning through a comprehensive shift to 21st Century competencies mapped across learning domains and measured across a career-long learning continuum • ALM leverages outcomes to focus tasks; instructional strategies to determine best methods and delivery; expert facilitators to engage learners in residence and Distributed Learning (DL), and mobile technologies to support the learner at the point of need for a more credible, rigorous and relevant learning experience Future for Training and Education: • Future T&E Capabilities to: . • Synch individual learning events with position requirements independent of Soldier location • Develop, manage, store, & deliver digitized learning content worldwide • Provide on-demand Soldier initiated access to relevant learning content and instruction  • Empower rapid development, update, & sharing of digitized learning content by in-house workforce • Measure relevance of learning outcomes & rapidly adapt to Operational Army needs • Tailor learning to Soldiers’ experience & knowledge level • ALM does NOT focus on any particular technology • The Army Learning Model focuses on opportunities presented by dynamic virtual environments, by on-line gaming, and by mobile learning • Currently oriented primarily on transforming individual Soldier and leader learning in initial military training, professional military education, and functional courses • The next iteration of the concept carries forward the adaptive, learner-centric and career-long approach and merges individual and collective learning (to be discussed by COL Trossen) • . 6
