This is the classic ‘forgetting curve’ by Ebbinghaus, a fundamental truth in memory theory, totally ignored by most educators and trainers. Most fixed ’courses’ or ‘lectures’ take no notice of the phenomenon, condemning much of their effort to the world of lost memories. Most educational and training pedagogies are hopelessly inefficient because they fail to recognise this basic truth. Smart learners get it. They revise over a period, with regular doses to consolidate their memories.
The Europeans seem to be more focused on credentials than performance, e.g. “On-the-job learning presents a number of challenges that go beyond work organisation, such as the validation and certification of learning.” Apparently just having the capacity to do the job is not enough. The report hammers away at this theme, saying “The validation of learning, personalised learning and training plans, together with career guidance and counselling, are cornerstones of national and sectoral initiatives that seek to up-skill workers, take stock of their life and work experiences to bring them back into learning, and even impel them ‘one-step-up’ through the acquisition, for example, of a qualification.”
