Learning guides are a way of allowing learners to acquire knowledge and skills in order to perform industry-based tasks, gain certification for work in their chosen occupation or assist workers who need to be retrained. They are structured booklets designed to direct a learner through a series of learning activities and to a range of resources, to achieve industry specified competencies. This manual is intended to meet the growing demand by TAFE and industry for an easy-to-use manual on the design and use of learning guides. Part 1, on understanding learning guides covers: why the development of learning guides is important now; what learning guides are; why use learning guides; how to make the best use of learning guides; how learning guides fit in with competency-based training, and; whether learning guides can be used with a computer-managed learning approach. Part 2, entitled designing learning guides covers: before you begin writing; matching learning guides with resources; evaluating learning resources; the learning guide design team; the parts of the learning guide; writing supplementary materials; presentation guidelines for learning guide writers.
