When learning activities have clearly defined learning goals, using a task-based learning approach focuses each trainee on reaching those goals.
Task-based learning focuses on teaching how to complete communicative tasks.
Learning Goal: With task-based learning, trainees have a communicative task they need to complete, for example, using professional business language to express opinions in a meeting.
Focused Learning Activities: The trainer creates activities that allow trainees to use high-quality language to practice expressing opinions.
Demonstrate Competence: At the end of the activity, the trainees conduct short presentations or role plays to demonstrate their abiliity.
Evaluate Performance: The trainer uses detailed assessment rubrics to evaluate their performance.
Task-based learning is perfect for corporate training where HR and Training managers want to see concrete results.
