Trainee learning responsibilities

Trainee learning responsibilities

When learning online, it is important trainees establish their own effective online learning techniques.

The following hints may help:

  1. Ensure you have sufficient free time (including release time from your employer of around 10 hours per week, if working full time) to do course work
  2. Take advantage of all the learning resources on offer
  3. Plan your time in advance – use the online calendar and other study guide aids provided in some seminars
  4. Complete coursework on time or ahead of the deadline and submit this regularly for feedback – not in a rush at the end of the week in a way that prevents your instructor providing valuable feedback on one task before proceeding to the next
  5. Do not wait until the deadline to submit work, in case you do have a problem (technical or otherwise)
  6. Check Announcements regularly
  7. Contact support personnel promptly if experiencing a site-access issue
  8. Stay in touch with your instructor and supportive co-trainees
  9. Take pride in the appearance of the work you submit
  10. Make adaptations to your preferred learning style where necessary to suit the learning environment.
  11. Ensure study time is quality time, e.g.
    • Take study leave from work in the mornings, not at the end of the day, if you are at your best in the morning.
    • Set up your place for study to be free of distractions for the necessary time

Equip yourself with the best Internet connection and computer resources you can afford
