ITCILO organizes this e-Learning Lab as a coherent package of two stand-alone courses. Participants will choose if attending only one or both courses. The completion of both courses (60 hours, 8 weeks), leads to a certificate of Achievement under the ITCILO Certification Framework.
ITCILO organizes this specially designed Lab for TVET specialists, managers and teachers of TVET centres in order to rapidly develop their capacities for transforming available materials to suit on-line delivery and also operate distance-learning programmes with a strong focus on multimedia, digital (incl. mobile) and inter-active learning solutions.
The materials designed for this Lab course package will be used to sustainably improve TVET Centres’ overall distance learning capacity and trainers’ skills to lead e-Learning delivery in TVET; this will benefit TVET systems’ effectiveness and quality in the short and in the long-term in delivering E-learning and blended learning as part of a modern approach to TVET.
The course is centred on instructional design models and strategies, reflecting state-of the art approaches with a focus on technologies increasing TVET users’ engagement, on developing e-assessment tools and on how to ensure quality in distance and online learning.
The Lab will also be an experience-sharing platform: connecting with other colleagues and using the latest e-tools designed to support TVET, participants will be able to define an e-Learning strategy that is suitable to their specific TVET-focused needs.
This e-Learning training offer is part of ITCILO’s Skills Development portfolio, which targets worldwide capacity building needs to support the implementation of TVET and skills development programmes.
Representatives, managers and staff of key TVET stakeholders, such as:
The aim of the e-Learning Lab package is to rapidly build the capacities of TVET professionals to improve the quality and outreach of e-Learning TVET and the delivery of TVET through digital learning, adopting successful approaches and tools to foster different forms of engagement and learning by the TVET users.
The e-Learning Lab on Digital TVET package is composed of two separate and stand- alone online courses:
Both courses provide a certificate of participation, while the participants attending the entire e-Learning Lab on Digital TVET will be assessed and certified with a certificate of achievement.
By the end of the entire Lab package, participants will have strengthened their technical knowledge to have a better understanding of the overall e-Learning cycle from a quality assurance perspective. The Lab will guide participants in the different phases, familiarising them with concrete tools and technologies to develop interesting, engaging and entertaining learning contents and to mainstream the latest advancements in technology, including Augmented and Virtual Reality, in service of TVET pathways. The Lab will also foster a thorough reflection on the eAssessment in TVET and will support 4 e-Learning Lab on Digital TVET participants in defining quality assurance tools and tailoring them to their needs and TVET systems or their e-Learning offer.
The course is action oriented. After completion of the entire Lab package participants will be able to immediately integrate e-Learning into their TVET systems and disseminate their learning among other colleagues who do not attend the course
