Institutional knowledge, particularly of safe work practices, is not necessarily captured in corporate safety systems – a problem worsened by a missing generation of middle managers and the retirement of senior personnel. In this talk, we discuss an instructional design process to better capture and convey institutional knowledge through training. We couple learning strategies which appeal to a new generation of workers with organizationally motivated assessments that are predicated upon outcomes for each learner. In this talk, we will survey a toolbox of active learning resources and evaluation metrics for curriculum development, discussing deployment and validation with industry partners. Example learning objectives, activities, and instruments will be provided, including our customizable card game for hazards recognition, “A Very Good Day,” and a recent expansion pack for sand and gravel operations.
