3. Another barrier is the environment (external factor) - whether it is physically comfortable (e.g., lighting, ventilation, temperature, noise levels) and psychologically / emotionally safe (no discrimination, bullying, people are respected, etc). Comment: well answered. 4. Research and explain 3 current learning theories that are applied to Vocational Education (not Malcolm Knowles) [standard 1.2]
1. Cognitive theory - attempts to explain human behaviour (and learning) by understanding the thought processes of an individual. Its main premise is that knowledge is generated through cognitive (mental) processes - such as recognising, recalling, analysing, reflecting, applying, creating, understanding and evaluating - with an emphasis on organising and finding patterns in information. 2. Constructionist theory - is a form of cognitive theory, and aims to explain how knowledge is 'constructed' by the learner actively building upon existing knowledge developed by their prior experiences. It promotes the learnerexploring within a given framework or structure by using real-life examples, and experiential, collaborative, project-based and task-based learning. 3. Behavioural learning theory - centres on learning basic skills that can then be used in the future (without even fully understanding them at the present time). It suggests people learn from experiences, by using existing knowledge and events to respond to new situations, and learning from the consequences of their reactions. It also focuses on observational and kinaesthetic learning. 5. What is meant by the term "reasonable adjustment"?
Reasonable adjustment is a measure or action taken to assist a student from a diverse background or with a physical or learning disability to participate in the training session on the same basis as the other learners. 6. Define verbal and non-verbal communication.
1. Verbal communication defines imparting or exchanging information using the spoken word and sound (such as talking or a song), which can be conducted through various mediums (e.g., face-to-face, telephone or radio). 2. Non-verbal communication defines imparting or exchanging information through non-verbal means and by using the five senses. This may include sight (pictures, gestures, facial expressions, body language), touch, smell and taste. There may also be non-verbal elements to speech, such as volume and tone. 7. What sources of OH&S information could you access to determine any hazards in the training environment?
1. Organisational documents such as: risk or hazard registers, hazard or incident reports, risk assessments, emergency procedures and induction training materials. 2. Workplace OHS representatives. 3. Property managers. 4. Other employees or trainers. Session 2-3 Quiz 1. What are some indicators to watch for from adult learners who may be having difficulties learning?
