JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas -- The fourth episode of "Developing Mach-21 Airmen," Air Education and Training Command's professional development podcast series, was released March 7.
In the episode, a team from the Headquarters AETC division A9Z, which focuses on Engagements and Assessments, talks all things related to innovation and how the command is looking at the future shaping of the learning environment.
Danielle Koehler, Tech. Sgt. Michael Maturan, and Staff Sgt. Aaron Parker discuss the engagements and assessments division and what they do, what the pursuit of innovation has looked like from the perspective of a technical training wing instructor and how an Airmen can have their voice heard, as well as what the future of learning looks like as we ensure Airmen get training and education that is learner-centric, controlled by Airmen and presented in the context of a mission.
The professional development podcasts are designed to help communicate and inform Total Force Airmen across the globe on relevant, timely topics related to the recruiting, training, education and development fields and can be listened to on the government network on the AETC website, or via mobile application as well as on Apple Podcasts (iTunes). For Android or Google mobile users, the podcast can be found on their favorite third-party podcast phone application.
Future episodes are set to cover a wide range of topics, including Pilot Training Next 2.0, which is the Air Force’s experimental approach to learning; how Squadron Officer School at Air University is using virtual reality, augmented reality and mixed-reality to upgrade the learning experience for officer development, and much more.
