PROGRAM / ACTION
Cooperation partnerships in vocational education and training
MAIN TARGET GROUPS
• Students, and pupils
• Education providers
• Experts and researchers
• Policy makers
The COVID-19 pandemic has created the largest disruption of education systems in history, affecting nearly 1.6 billion learners in more than 190 countries in all continents. Education systems are now asked to capitalize the lessons learned, embedding the innovation generated under emergency, switching to sustainability of novel approaches, methods and practices. In many countries, education providers are struggling to integrate Digital Learning in their curricula, reorganizing their offer and delivery systems accordingly. On the other hand, the lockdown has made evident that digital is changing our approaches, ways of organizing ourselves, of interaction and expression.
The WIDE project aims to create a new methodology for online and distance learning. A methodology where the mental and physical wellbeing of the students and teachers are not sacrificed in the process of distance learning but instead integrated as a core value of the learning process.
The partnership will develop a methodology based on the replies of a cross European survey as well as the experience of teachers and experts.
A set of guidelines will by produced and presented in a professional and publicly accessible online platform and will then be tested thoroughly in all the partner countries.
Finally, based on the testing and evaluation, a set of policy recommendations will be presented to teachers and stakeholders in VET education institutions and policy makers across Europe.
