How to train staff: What is constructivism learning theory?

Updated: Oct 11, 2019

Building on a trainees existing knowledge saves time and validates the student's accomplishments to date.

When #training a person I like to borrow heavily from the #constructivist #theory of learning with a bit of #coaching thrown in to facilitate the #process. Every trainee has an existing library of knowledge and #skills so it makes sense to build on these even if they aren’t directly related. Not only does this save time in the #learning space but it also validates the trainees previous experiences building #confidence and #purpose. In this article from the University of Sydney, Piaget's theory of constructivism is explored further and a series of resources are provided for reference.
