Designing for scale: How to use mobile devices to recruit, train and equip an extra 18,500 defence personnel

I will be speaking on "Designing for scale: How to use mobile devices to recruit, train and equip the extra 18,500 defence personnel", at the Mobile Learning Special Interest Group meeting of the Australasian Society for Computers in Learning in Tertiary Education (ASCILITE), 10 am, Friday, August 26, 2022. 

On 10 March 2022, the then Prime Minister announced that the Australian Defence Force would ADF personnel will increase 30% by 2040, at a cost of $38B. As the PM noted, “You can’t flick a switch to increase your army, navy and air force overnight, growing the type of people and skills we need to face the threats of the future takes time, so we must start now so critical skills can be taught and experience gained". 

The new and existing personnel will require new skills in fields such as cyber security, nuclear propulsion, and warfighting in space. Intelligence, information and communications capacity were singled out in the announcement.

This seminar explores how mobile technology and mobile learning could be used to recruit, train and equip these personnel.
