STEP 3 Timeline

Output 1: Analysis of the framework for the ICT upskilling of VET teachers and trainers

NEEDS ANALYSIS - TARGET GROUP

The new forms of Vocational training delivery have created skills gaps and shortcomings among the VET Teachers/Trainers/Mentors. In most cases, VET staff (icluding teachers) have reported that they struggle to follow the latest improvements in e-learning and that their performance in delivering online VET training is of lower quality compared to the e-class delivery. Their needs for upskilling of VET Teachers/Trainers/Mentors have been identified both at an EU level (see Digital Education Action Plan (2021-2027)) and from the VET Umbrella Organizations (EVBB and EVTA) through a consultation process during and after the lockdown period.

Although the need for upskilling has been identified, it has not been a subject of a thoroughfull Training Needs analysis, mainly due to the absence of available accessibility to the beneficiaries.

The direct involvement of VET Teachers/Trainers in the formulation of the contect of the 30 modules based on their actual needs for upskilling within the context of the five areas of DigiComp 2, is therefore fundamental for the design of added value training modules, that are going to target the most evident upskilling needs of the digital competences of VET Teachers and staff

Output 2: Design and delivery of the O.E.R. of STEP 3

01/10/2021 – 30/06/2022

When developing the OER under IO2 the following principles will be adopted:

  • Adaptable – OER can be adopted across multiple mediums and learning styles e.g. online, workshop and classroom based.
  • Clear – Language pitched at the appropriate level with simple instructions and layout.
  • Interactive – Engaging formative and summative activities which provide opportunities to learn collaboratively
  • Authentic, current and relevant – Providing multidimensional activities, contexts and tasks which reflect the work role
  • Flexible and accessible – Designing assessment and learning resources that can adapt a range of contexts, situations and mediums within accelerated and self-directed learning
  • Clustered – Learning topics designed with a logical flow and based around the digital upskilling of VET Teachers/Trainers and Staff
  • Assessment of the learning experience.

 

Parallel to the development of the OER, Under IO2 the STEP 3 consortium will set a MOOC Platform for the delivering of the material, aiming at integrating it into an EVBB / EVTA depository of e-learning modules for trainers platform, as a “stand alone” feature while also developing an evaluation mechanism for the training procedure and content, so that feedback is going to be provided and the upgrade of the material can be implemented during and after project completion.

Output 3

After the implementation of the Joint Staff Training Activities we are going to exploit the modules within the participating VET Institutions and beyond, through the network of EVBB and EVTA. Therefore, within the context of IO3 we are planning peer learning activities from VET Teachers to other Teachers as a form of active, cooperative learning used for Institutional level instruction, where participants of the JST are going to transfer knowledge inside their sending VET institutions, to other teachers/trainers/staff. Fundamentally, peer learning activities on the OER produced under IO2 (30 modules), is built in ordert to create an internal and external interaction (discussion or dialogue) within and beyond the VET institutions. With IO3 we take one step further and place the participants in the role of being a peer teacher, either formally or informally, transferring their experience and knowledge acquired during the JST to other VET Teachers/mentors. In this teaching approach, some type of a two¬-way, reciprocal learning activity is designed for participants (VET teachers/trainers/staff) to learn from each other by addressing the potentials of e-learning, under the perspective of enhanced digital skills acquired through the 30 modules produced. Typically, participants are going to explain their thoughts and ideas to each other, discuss concepts, or find solutions to problems related to the OER produced and the full use of the new STEP 3 features. This process forces them to think through their arguments and to assess their own understanding of the concepts being taught.
