DAU to Open Tech Lab in Central Fla.

The Defense Acquisition University (DAU) will establish and co-locate its new “OrlandoTeaching and Learning Lab” with the Joint ADL Co-Lab in Central Florida Research Park in Orlando.

“The co-location of DAU’s teaching and learning lab with the Joint Advanced Distributed Learning facilities provides opportunities for partnering with the Team Orlando industry, government and academia,” says Dan Gardner, Director of Readiness and Training, Policy & Programs; Office of the Secretary of Defense. “The test bed will be instrumental in implementing advanced distributed learning technologies into education and training. This is definitely a win-win for users of distributed learning and our education programs which are designed to teach critical skills to DoD acquisition, technology and logistics personnel.”

The Joint ADL Co-Lab in Orlando is part of the ADL Network and is responsible for implementing distributed learning and training technologies within the Department of Defense.

The DAU is an institution that touches each and every one of the 126,000-member DoD acquisition, technology, and logistics (AT&L) workforce throughout all professional career stages. The university provides a full range of basic, intermediate and advanced certification training, assignment-specific training, performance support, job-relevant applied research and continuous learning/knowledge sharing opportunities.

In addition to its partnership with the Joint ADL Co-Lab, DAU has chosen to partner with the University of Central Florida for joint use classroom facilities.
