Media Count 44p
Personal Author G. Ferro H. Foldes M. Cullen M. Wisecarver T. R. Graves
Abstract We reviewed the scientific literature on self-directed learning, self-regulation of learning, motivation for self-learning, and organizational supports for self-directed learning. Findings based on the review were set in the context of the Army Learning Model 2015 (Army Learning Concept 2015). Recommendations were made concerning organizational and training support for the development and enhancement of self-directed learning skills, with a focus on developing enlisted Soldiers and Army NCOs. Various techniques and approaches are proposed concerning measurement of self-learning and the acquisition of self-learning skills within the Army NCO Corps.
