GWO Requirements for Training Providers

Energy and dedication emerge when cooperating in groups where the participants must commit to the task and be mutual responsible for the learning process. By decreasing the challenges and risks, the focus on learning can be supported while building confidence and creating the participants feeling of safety in the learning environment. On the other hand, by intensifying the environmental challenges and the risks in the simulation, participants may be challenged, fostering courage and determination.

What activities will facilitate the learning process for the participants at the intermediate level?

A. Short demonstrations of the skill followed by participants practice of how to apply the skill in various scenarios either by themselves, in pairs or in small teams. B. Practicing the skill in a simulated environment where it should be possible to adjust the difficulty and fidelity of an exercise - e.g. waves or wind, working at heights, flames and heat. C. Answering questions on the topic facilitates the necessary participant reflection. Examples of questions: How does this knowledge about an action fit with other or similar actions? What other knowledge does this key into? Which new actions can this new understanding support? D. A test or quiz on the topic can also trigger participants’ reflection. By assessing a peer’s test results both participants revisit and reconsider the questions and answers. E. Feedback is the strongest learning accelerator provided it is focused on what should be corrected and where or how improvement can be made. The participant must commit to the proposed improvements. F. Working in small groups, where all participants are active and learn by creating new experiences, intensifies learning processes as participants must concentrate on both individual and collective achievements.

Evaluation methods in coherence with learning objectives and activities

A. In order to assess participant skills, these must be demonstrated and observed. B. The participant must perform their skills in relevant cases or task-solving in an environment that simulates as closely as possible the work reality. C. Evaluation activities must be as similar as possible and coherent to learning activities. Content-related surprises should be avoided in evaluation activities.
