Which pedagogy in this distance learning
Cognitive apprenticeship approach
This distance learning is designed according to the principles of a cognitive apprenticeship
Ideally, the trainees should work in teams on projects or problems with close scaffolding of the
instructor or the computer based feedback system.
The trainees are asked to undertake tasks that are slightly more difficult than they can manage
independently, requiring the aid of their peers and instructor (human or computer) to succeed.
The problem solving activities should not be "neat" and pre-defined, but rather, complex with
trainees required to discover relevant procedures. Instead of a pure drill-and-practice
environment, the module will provide a resource set from which relevant information is sorted
and derived by the trainees.
Coaching and scaffolding is a key part of the training materials. Hints, prompts and feedback are
embedded in the computer based training system. They can be complemented by a close
monitoring by tutors to provide additional support when needed.
The most critical component of situated learning is communication among peers. Forums and
Chat rooms can be organized at the level of trainees teams to provide communication and
problem discussion.

Learning by studying
The Workshop Manual is made available as a pdf file. It can be downloaded and printed by the
trainee. This will provide her with a classic reference document to read and study. The same
Workshop Manual is also displayed in a succession of sections, corresponding to the outline
structure of the module. Each section is displayed either in a pdf format that is easy to read on
screen and which can also be printed, or in an html format that exploits the interactivity
possibilities offered by the web.
Learning by doing
In each section of the outline there are exercises to do. They are based on the material
contained in the Workshop Manual. Doing the exercises is an essential part of the training. The
access to the next section of the outline will eventually be given only when the trainee obtains
the correct answers to all the exercises proposed in the section.
Learning through feedback
When working on the solution of an exercise the trainee may ask for hints. The access to these
indications is obtained via a proposed logic. The trainee can select one inquiry and obtain an
immediate feedback which is an extract from the Workshop Manual or a voice recorded
comment. Working with these indications and hints the trainee should arrive at the correct
Learning through case studies
Case studies will give the trainees an opportunity to work in team on complex situations, using
the different resources at their disposal. Structured feedback will help the team in the search for
a solution

What about « Bricks »…

              Brick definition
What does a "brick" represent? To exploit the fine grain
modularity permitted by the web based training system,
the content of SUPPREM is organized in small units that
correspond to 1 or 0.5 credit .
These bricks can ultimately be used to compose full
credit courses, through a combination of interelated

 The bricks are:
 • Described on SUPPREM website
 • Stored on SUPPREM content server
 • Delivered on OiL
