LESSON OUTCOME:

Students will process International mail IAW USPS and DOD directives/guidance in support of postal operations.

TERMINAL LEARNING OBJECTIVE:

The

Army Learning Areas (ALA)

are the baseline focal points Soldiers and Army Civilians must possess to prevail in the ambiguous environments that challenge the Army today. The four ALAs are: Army Profession and Leadership; Mission Command; Human Dimension; and Professional Competence. The Army Learning Area taxonomy provides a framework to assist in grouping the General Learning Outcomes. The four Army Learning Areas serve as the framework to catalogue the 14 General Learning Outcomes.

 

The General Learning Outcomes (GLOs)

are essential outcomes resulting from training, education, and experience along a career continuum of learning. There are three primary purposes for the Army General Learning Outcomes. First, they provide trainers and educators a lens into how effective they are in conveying their support material. Second, it assists in improving instructional design and/or training support packages. Finally it places responsibility on training and education proponents to be nested with ALAs. ALA: Professional Competence GLOs  GLO 14: Soldiers and Army Civilians are technically and tactically competent.
