William Glessner, 305th Military Intelligence Battalion, explains his Instructional Design Master’s Certificate Capstone Project to James Shockey, dean, The University of Arizona South, and other faculty members, during an open house at Alvarado Hall, Dec. 6.

During an open house at Alvarado Hall, Dec. 6, four U. S. Army Intelligence Center of Excellence employees presented the Instructional Design Master’s Certificate Capstone Projects they have been working on through The University of Arizona South.

With funding provided by USAICoE, these students were the first to graduate from the Instructional Design Master’s Certificate program.

“This program benefits our education and training. We want to build awareness for the Master’s Certificate program and encourage USAICoE employees in the training effort to apply in the future,” said Timothy Quinn, Training Development and Support deputy director.

The program is designed for educators who like to use and integrate educational technology, including emerging technologies in schools and classrooms, according to http://edtech.arizona.edu/content/graduate-certificate-educational-technology.

Upon program completion, students will be able to apply the following concepts to their position with USAICoE:

  • Plan, design, and model effective learning environments and multiple experiences supported by technology
  • Apply and implement curriculum plans that include methods and strategies for using technology to maximize student learning
  • Apply technology to facilitate a variety of effective assessment and evaluation strategies
  • Contribute to the shared vision for campus integration of technology and foster an environment and culture conducive to the realization of the vision

During the open house, each student briefly explained his or her project to USAICoE leaders.

William Glessner, a training developer with the 305th Military Intelligence (MI) Battalion, produced a needs analysis that determined if officers graduating from the MI Captain’s Career Course, or MICCC, required additional training to meet the demands of their new commanders.

Meredith Arnold, a training developer with the 305th MI Battalion, conducted a performance gap analysis on the skills and knowledge needed for instructors to be able to produce a fully developed lesson plan from the instructional design documents.

Jason Heffel, Quality Assurance Office, developed a task and needs analysis on Cognitive Task Analysis, which is used to get at the thinking part of our MI tasks.

Bassam “Sam” Almesfer, of the Training and Doctrine Command Culture Center, established an instructional design plan for redesigning the cultural awareness portion of the MICCC common core.

Among those who attended the open house was The University of Arizona South Dean, James Shockey, and Col. Thomas Boone, director of Training Development and Support.

Unable to attend the event, Maj. Gen. Robert Ashley, commanding general, USAICoE and Fort Huachuca, sent a personal message to each student expressing his appreciation for their work.

In his message to Glessner, Ashley said, “I just wanted to say thanks for your work on the reach-back capability for MI [captains] once they leave the MICCC to learn about garrison S2 duties and specific branch information. That instruction, as you know, has had a huge demand signal from our [captains] … glad you were able to get after closing the gap.”

“All four projects were picked because they had real meaning for the installation,” said Beth Leeder, division chief, Training Development and Support. “We now have the ability to grow our own capability through these four graduates.”
