Sharing good practice. Is there something here that you can incorporate into your training?

by Australian Road Research Board on July 26, 2016

Do you take adult learning principles into account when planning your training? During the delivery of our Level 2 Bridge Inspection course some of the things we know about our learners are that they are self-directed, use experience as a resource, need relevant learning, and are goal-oriented.

  • We know that our learners are self-directed learners, so we encourage them to share during discussions, to question the learning concepts and to problem solve by taking them out to conduct inspections of real bridges.
  • We know that our learners come with a wealth of experience to support their learning. We aim to link the new learning to their exisiting knowledge. Our groups range from learners who work in the industry but are new to it, to those who are currently inspecting bridges and want to learn how to conduct a level 2 inspection. Each learner has an individual learning experience.
  • We know that our learners are attending the course to be able to complete level 2 bridge inspections for work. We help them value the learning by supporting them to work out how it is applicable to their work role.
  • We know that our learners have the goal of becoming Level 2 bridge inspectors. We start our workshop with clear learning objectives and remind them throughout the course of that goal. At the end of day 2 we are very clear about what they have to do to complete the assessment.
