PQCU focus on two learning concepts:
Project Based Learning’s time has come. The experience of thousands of teachers across all grade levels and subject areas, backed by research, confirms that PBL is an effective and enjoyable way to learn — and develop deeper learning competencies required for success in college, career and civic life. Why are so many educators across the United States and around the world interested in this teaching method? The answer is a combination of timeless reasons and recent developments.
Project Based Learning is a teaching method in which students gain knowledge and skills by working for an extended period of time to investigate and respond to a complex question, problem, or challenge.
Training is a waste of Time and Money
Learning by doing is a universal concept. The principle of learning by doing is inherited from birth. So if this concept is so simple, why do we fail to apply it to our professional lives? Although more companies are attempting to include continual education into their corporate culture, the number of professional workers applying industry best practices compared to those who learn only to forget them is much greater.
But what’s more important than statistics of who’s doing wrong is learning how to do what’s right. The best way to increase your human capital is to follow this model:
Training x Application = Learning
This means you’ll never fully grasp the concept of any training or education you’ve obtained without practice. Once you receive training, you should put it into practice immediately and frequently. Studies show that if you don’t apply your training within 20 days of first being exposed, you are likely to lose 80% of that knowledge. Learning refers to a worker’s ability to improve productivity by consistently repeating an action or standard practice. The worker’s increased productivity is achieved through:
- Perfection: the highest degree of proficiency or skill
- Practice: repeating a performance to acquire a certain skill
- Progress: advancement toward a higher goal
So, what’s the best way to increase your human capital while spending your capital dollars on education? Application is the only way. If you don’t apply what you’ve learned, you’re wasting your time—and your money.
At PQCU, we have a very unique learning to drive the sustainability of knowledge transfer. The Module Learning Model (MLM) is structured in project based learning format.
