EXERCISE 2: A REPORT ON MEDIA AND INSTRUCTION Exercise 2: A report on media and instruction Topic: Site Safety Orientation Audience: All visitors to wind turbine site that will be involved in maintenance or operation of turbines and all support systems. Media: Multimedia Presentation

I would use a multimedia presentation that consisted of text, graphics, audio, illustrations, and video. This presentation would also allow for interactivity in which the learner is able to respond to different safety scenarios. Multi-channel communications that combine words with related or relevant illustrations will be utilized as well in order to provide the greatest gain. (Kemp & Smellie, n.d., para. 45) An introduction video will be prepared that will welcome and introduce the site visitors to the site as well as give a brief introduction and photo of essential onsite staff that visitors may need to be able to identify such as safety officer, site manager, lead technician, and parts supply personnel. The introductory video will also briefly tell the visitors the learning objectives and how to proceed through the orientation. (Kemp & Smellie, n.d., para. 1) The presentation will then be organized into site safety orientation topics that correspond to each learning objective. Many vital objectives will be emphasized repeatedly throughout several topics. (Kemp & Smellie, n.d., para. 5) Each topic will utilize audio, video, illustrations, graphics, or text in order to introduce visitors to important information and regulations. At the end of each topic there will be an interactive scenario in which visitors will make important decisions utilizing what they have previously learned. Any scenario that visitors do not respond to correctly will be repeated until it is successfully completed. This will also assist in

EXERCISE 2: A REPORT ON MEDIA AND INSTRUCTION showing learners common safety errors and how to avoid them; thus, increasing the skills learned from the media. (Kemp & Smellie, n.d., para. 6) Attention will be given to assuring that the structure of interactivity will serve both high

ability learners as well as low ability learners. (Kemp & Smellie, n.d., para. 92) A review will be presented because repetition is the most effective means for increasing learning. (para. 5) To conclude the Safety Orientation, visitors will then be given a scenario that is presented in an interactive simulation format in which they must identify all safety hazards and risks. Instead of requiring simple factual recall, this will require a higher level of mental abilities. (para. 98)
