Professor Brad Lee and Col. David Brown, both of the Strategy and Policy Department, recently attended a conference at the Army War College on April 17, 2009, to discuss the critical issue of how best to teach strategy. 

Numerous Professional Military Education and civilian educational centers were represented at the one day conference, including Strategic Studies Institute, Georgia Institute of Technology, Joint Forces Command, the Army's Command and General Staff College, Center for Hemispheric Defense Studies, Georgetown University, Royal Military College of Canada, Franklin & Marshall College, McDaniel College, and other war colleges.

Lee presented a paper discussing the unique, longstanding approach of teaching Strategy at the Naval War College in a multi-disciplinary case-study framework relying heavily on historical and contemporary experience and classical strategic theory. Some debate centered around the balance of exposing students to real-world strategic thinking or immersing them in scenario-driven war-games. 

Lt. Gen. (Ret.) David Barno gave the assembled representatives his thoughts on what best prepared him for strategic leadership and policy advisor roles as the former commander of Allied Forces in Afghanistan.
