VILMA Informal Learning Patterns
From the extensive use of LEVEL5 it has become apparent that a multitude of benefits can be gained from this evaluation process. It is not merely a documentation exercise but rather a dual process that benefits both the learner and the learning provder
- Firstly, the learners’ skill and competency levels can be accurately defined and measured before and after a learning experience. The impact of the learning becomes clearly evident through the evaluation of specific parameters which enable the individual’s progress to be charted and monitored, thus enabling the learner to recognise the learning outcomes at a cognitive, active and affective level.
- Secondly, the practitioners (or educators) can monitor the effectiveness of the learning activity through highlighting specific areas for development or improvement and thus maximising the impact of their work.
VILMA provides support for the improvement of the learning offer by integrating informal learning patterns (ILP).
