New technical paper from VISTA addresses key mine training challenge

May 28, 2013  |  News & Trends

Too often, haul truck operator trainees don't retain enough of the knowledge they learn during training. That can lead to longer on-boarding cycles, lower productivity and potential safety problems in the mine.

Blended learning - providing training via multiple modalities using a highly structured, building-block approach - shows a lot of promise in addressing this challenge.

Last week, VISTA Training presented a new technical paper on this subject at the 2013 Haulage & Loading Conference in Phoenix, Arizona, which is operated by Mining Media (publisher of Engineering & Mining Journal and Coal Age magazines). During this presentation, VISTA marketing manager covered:

  • The training challenges many mines face today
  • How inadequate training tends to lead to operational challenges
  • The unique needs of adult learners
  • An overview of blended learning
  • How "knowledge chunks" and "building blocks" improve learning
  • A deeper analysis of the impact of blended learning at Suncor Energy
  • The next frontier of blended learning
  • Advice for implementing blended learning in your mine
