Type 3: Task-autonomy

Learning outcomes

The learning seeks to help learners to learn and understand (as distinct from applying) open-ended processes and procedures involving a knowledge of equipment, products, resources and/or terminology, where the application involves levels of judgment and subjectivity.

Within an industry context, learners are intended to learn how to apply a process/procedure through a highly self-directed and activity-based learning in a simulated workplace setting.

Learning engagement

The primary forms of learner engagement planned include:

  • reading, browsing, choosing, comparing, describing, reflecting
  • planning, questioning, investigating, inquiring
  • analysing, evaluating, synthesising.

The engagement is based on an open-ended setting where learners plan and develop a product or artefact by applying new knowledge and skills led through a range of learning activities that lead to the completion of a project/problem resolution.
