Is this not what crane operators do every day as they face different and varied issues on the worksite and through collaboration resolve the issues and come up with a plan of action.
If we look at the way we train today, theory and practical, with information being provided and learning by rote, are we training for the workplace?
Problem Based Learning gets a student/trainee to consider what they know that they can be applied to a problem. They then have to consider what they don't know and how they are going to find out out what they need to know to resolve their problem
This form of learning teaches a trainee to think laterally and gives them the character to work collaboratively (team work).
Is this something we should be doing through our ITO?
