Survey Survey

PDP Instructor Survey

I’m considering recommending some changes to the basic course PDP for the Dean and Commander. Before I travel too far down that road I want to solicit your thoughts. The survey below is the first step. Once I tally the results, I’ll transmit them to you and we can discuss whether to move forward with change recommendations and, if so, how.

My own initial thoughts on possible changes:\n --Use “Black Hearts” as the class-wide reading. It’s about Iraq, it’s non-fiction, and it has legal issues running throughout the narrative. It’s also somewhat shorter than OAE. \r\n --Use ADRP 1 (“The Army Profession”) as the doctrinal baseline. The five pillars of the Army Profession and three components of the Army Ethic give us eight lessons (seven if we merge expertise with competence): o Military Expertise o Honorable Service o Trust o Esprit de Corps o Stewardship of the Profession o Character o 
 Competence o Commitment

7. If you have read it, do you think it’s suitable to be the baseline reading for the basic course PDP?
