ANNEX 4 - GWO TAXONOMY FRAMEWORK Terms and Definitions Term Definition Learning In the GWO Taxonomy Framework, learning is defined as:

Learning is individual and personal constructions of experiences. Experiences are the results of reflections on impressions from acting. Acting includes listening, reading, observing, discussing, and trying to solve a task. To act always involves more than the individual itself, and therefore experience – and thus learning - is a social construction. To learn, we have to act, and the more motivated, involved, and active we are in the process, the more we learn. Motivation Motivation is an internal state that activates, guides, and sustains behaviour. It impacts the speed and efficiency of the learning process. Individuals who are motivated persevere longer, produce higher quality effort, learn more deeply, and perform better in training activities and work situations.


We use observe in the broad sense of, to examine. To observe is to actively acquire information from a primary source. Observation employs the senses and enables transfer of knowledge. Observing how a technique is being performed or how another participant is practising a skill, helps the participants familiarise themselves with new knowledge or skills and gain confidence to repeat the learning activity. Observing also facilitate the instructor’s assessment of the participant’s development. Reflection is more than just thinking about a topic. Reflection is critical thinking putting one’s understanding into perspective to find a well-thought-out solution to a challenge. It can also be about how new impressions fit into the individual’s present experiences.


Foreword All employees in the wind turbine industry shall be sufficiently trained and have the abilities required to carry out their work in a safe and injury free work environment at all times. The purpose of GWO’s Taxonomy Framework is to reinforce this vision by establishing a transparent principal framework to describe safety training characteristics and participant performance in shared terms. The GWO Taxonomy Framework is based on multiple global qualification frameworks that focus on lifelong learning. 1 The specific aim of the Taxonomy Framework is to ensure coherence and conformity between the
