What is the Exercises activity?
Real-life situation scenarios
For the things we have to learn before we can do them, we learn by doing them said Aristotle, a while ago!
The Exercises activity proposes real-life situation scenarios validating the training principles. The Self-evaluation activity, combined with the Exercises activity, gives the learner recommended activities. Once prescribed, a I did it today button is added to the exercise card.
The Exercises activity is proposed during the Apply phase of the ELPA learning cycle in order to put the learner's acquired knowledge into action.
