|Abstract:||This study investigates success and failure factors related to workplace simulation learning in Dutch pre-vocational secondary education. Research in other practical settings indicates that self-directed learning, self-regulated learning and deliberate practice are key competencies that positively affect learning outcomes. A focus group study with 20 teachers and 35 students was conducted. Similarities and discrepancies between theory and practice are put forward. For instance, not offering choices interferes with a self-directed learning approach.|
