The Defense Acquisition Workforce is getting younger, and its educational expectations include using advanced and innovative learning technologies. The Defense Acquisition University (DAU) has fully embraced this generational trend and has partnered with several institutions to conduct research on Advanced Learning Technologies, or ALT. One such partnership is with George Mason University’s Instructional Technology Immersion Program. The partnership’s goal was to examine DAU’s current learning assets and identify processes and methods for utilizing innovative learning technology designs. This article summarizes this effort and describes the resulting online performance support tool called LATIST (Learning Asset Technology Integration Support Tool) developed to facilitate the understanding, selection, and integration of ALT by DAU faculty and staff.
