1:30 p.m. Building Effective Agents of Change through Self-Reflection

Dr. Hanan Khaled, Department Chairperson, Department of Army/Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center 
The most powerful, durable, and effective agents of educational change in any professional fields are the teachers. This research-based session shares a social constructivist teacher professional development program and its implementation. The program is adaptable to different educational contexts and teachers’ varied self-reflection tendencies. Through the program, teachers’ learning was mediated through interactions with the course resources, reflective tasks, students, colleagues, instructional coaches, supervisors, and the facilitator—developer of the project.

Ms. Cecelia Zaks, Instructional Designer, Air Forces Services Center

Dr. Kelly Jewell-Glasscock, Curriculum Developer and Instructor, Air University Teaching and Learning Center
Dr. Ruth Busby, Curriculum Developer and Instructor, Air University Teaching and Learning Center
Dr. Susan Slear, Curriculum Developer and Instructor, Air University Teaching and Learning Center

Highly effective instructors in military classrooms are vitally important to the success of the mission. Preparing instructors to successfully teach and promote learning requires understanding of a variety of learning theories, active learning strategies, assessment methods and technology skills. The Air University Teaching and Learning Center created the Teaching Essentials Course (TEC) to equip instructors with interactive foundational lessons that are student-centered, flexible and evidenced based. The TEC is beneficial for newly assigned and beginning instructors as well as veteran instructors who may want a refresher. This course is suitable for civilian instructors to enlisted and officer instructors and is offered in multiple modalities with unparalleled flexibility, making it customizable for diverse needs. Currently, there is no asynchronous faculty development programming like the TEC throughout the DOD. Airmen can access the TEC anywhere at any time providing options and flexibility especially for deployed individuals. In this session, this unique approach including process and lessons learned will be shared.

3:00 p.m. Percipio Update

Mr. Mark Onisk, Chief Content Creator, SkillSoft
In this session see how Percipio, the new learning platform for Air Force eLearning, will inspire and motivate Airmen to take more ownership of their own development and promote learning across the ranks. Percipio is Latin for "Acquiring Knowledge".
