The work of the subgroups and first seminar organisation at the 5th online meeting of VET IN 3D
The 5th online meeting of the VET IN 3D project was held on May 12, 2021 and it has its main focus on the work of the three subgroups: Entrepreneurship, TEL, Social inclusion, i.e. the identification of their good practices. The organisation of the first seminar in the framework of the project was also discussed.
Two priorities for the Entrepreneurship subgroup were identified and reported by Paolo Nardi from Cometa:
Skills & curriculum: What do learners have to learn?
Methods & Tools based on reality-based learning: How do learners learn best?
Fernanda Torres from INETE presented the TEL subgroup work. In the two areas the focus was given respectively to:
Skills & VET curricula for digital transformation:
- Trainers skills development for using digital tech for classroom teaching and supporting home learning
- Learners skills development for using digital tech for classroom and home learning (different type of learning: team learning, collaborative learning, problem-based learning work-based learning)
Methods & tools for digital transformation:
- Developing and Implementing digital strategy in VET providers (based on SELFIE and DigCompEdu)
- From “teaching organisation” to “learning organisation”
Alfredo Garmendia from San Viator reported for the Social inclusion subgroup looking at some priorities in the area of skills & VET curricula and methods & tools. For the first kind of priority the focus will be on Trainers skills (technical, emotional and soft) for training people with fewer opportunities. For the second priority: Personal support to learners with fewer opportunities, Methods for personalization, Provision of training programmes adapted to the needs of people with fewer opportunities.
The first seminar in the framework of VET IN 3D will take place from the 28th till the 30th the of September 2021 and will focus on exchanging practices on the three dimensions of excellence in VET: Entrepreneurship education, Social Inclusion and TEL, possibly applied in the tourism sector given its importance for the European economy and the need to be re-launched after the Covid-19 outbreak.
In the next meeting the programme will be further defined.
