The FOGHE Manual is a follow-along resource for use during the in-residence course (Provided Here). Brief notes, discussion questions, and other resources for each lecture, module, and activity are provided in the workbook. The Manual also serves as a valuable reference for students after completing the course.
Students must complete the following readings prior to attendance in the course. Instructors will reference and discuss these readings and students will be expected to be familiar with the concepts found in the readings. Pre-course readings highlight published articles and documents that guide the conduct of DoD GHE and provide a broad overview and basic understanding of DoD GHE, enablers, and challenges to program/activity selection, planning, execution, and evaluation.
