Knowledge at the basic level implies that the participants are familiar with the given topic, are able to describe the topic, name its constituent parts or simply refer to the topic. Basic level knowledge is observed by a one-dimensional objective: “I can tell a fact”.
Examples of applying action verbs in a learning objective
The participants can name specific parts and items when presented to them. The participants can name the main components of a wind turbine. The participants can name different types of lifting. The participants can recognise signs and labels related to safety in a WTG. The participants can recognise common tasks, situations, tools, and signs. The participants can recognise the position of batteries in a circuit. The participants can describe how to use a specific tool. The participants can describe known hazards in common workplace situations. The participants can describe where to seek guidance in typical foreseeable situations.
How does the participant acquire knowledge at the basic level? The key elements for acquiring knowledge on the basic level are reflection and active (psychological) engagement. Reflection is essential for creating experiences and so learning. It facilitates participant understanding for example, when prompted to relate to, interpret and grasp the basic content. Furthermore, reflection helps to stimulate active participation in a more dynamic and varied learning process. Participants need to actively engage in relevant activities to acquire and retain knowledge at the basic level. When answering simple questions, copying how to describe topics listed in the learning objectives and naming different objects and individual parts, participants´ recognition of, and familiarity with, the subject at hand are increased. What activities will facilitate the learning process for the participants at the basic level? 1) Short presentations or instructions, where the participants take notes, are followed by the participants completing a simple quiz or questionnaire on screen, paper or digitally where participants consider the topic and the learning points. 2) Simple games or exercises, where the participants develop a further understanding of the topic by deciding how or when to apply it.
