Transform your training culture to learning culture
Let’s talk about your best successful sportsman. Try to think about him/her and analyse their best move by which they create dominance on their competitors. Do you know why they are the best in that move. It is all because of rehearsing that particular move innumerable times. So, rehearsal or practice is the key which separate one expert from the beginner or novice.
When we look at current eLearning, we find that most of the eLearning is focussed on information sharing or knowledge sharing but not providing platform to practice what they learned. Here come, Simulations based approaches for designing the eLearning specifically to enable practice of what learner’s gathered in their training programs.
Simulations actually engages learners, increases knowledge retention, solidifying learning and increase time to proficiency. These simulations are way more effective compared to traditional teaching methods. It has a beauty of providing space for interaction between users and simulated environment/equipment and gives immediate feedback to learner that helps them to improve their skills and knowledge. Practicing on that simulation help your learner to become expert.
Theses Simulations based learning transform complex concepts into interactive and fun based content which ultimately helps learners to become familiar with the process, tools, equipment, environment and they practice necessary skills without risking accidents to themselves, tools, violation of processes and equipment’s.
We have experienced many scenarios where organisations have used and continuously using Simulation based learning to train their employees like:
Aviation: Pilots are using those Flight simulators to get familiar with plane controls, and practice flying in difficult conditions like bad weather and Take-off or landing practice.
Medical: Medical students gets those hands-on experience while practicing surgeries, emergency interventions and administer prescriptions
Oil & Gas / Manufacturing: Industry use simulations in those Safety processes, Plant Tour, 3D description of machine-based operations, use in automation processes and manufacturing systems.
Mathematics: Used in teaching probabilities, statistics in theoretical environment.
There are many examples of using simulations in different industries. So, what are you waiting for let’s connect and discuss the possibilities to use Simulations based learning to enhance your existing training, and enable your learners to experiment in, so that they become proficient and able to execute what they have learned. They will be able to reinforce their bookish information or theoretical knowledge with hands on training through this technique and have better understanding of the material.
