Pedagogical solutions

In this work package, we deal with the question of how to implement blended learning in practice. It is about concrete activities of teachers: how to plan, how to conduct lessons …

The work consists of several phases:

1. Defining Elements of Blended learning and the competencies needed to carry out blended learning in vocational education and training

The document “Elements of blended learning and teachers’ pedagogical and digital competencies” was created, prepared by university partners from all three partner countries. This was the starting point for thinking and planning further activities.

Elements of blended learning (final) (1)

Three points of interest from the document:

 

2. Preparation of the training plan

Based on the starting document and needs analysis, we defined topics for teacher training. They are collected in the “Training plan” document, which is a guide for the design of the teacher training on the topi cof blended learning. Each of the three countries also produced a more detailed plan that took into account the characteristics and needs of the teachers there.

 

3. Teacher training

Blended learning is often the domain of individuals who are excited about this type of work, but we also have to think about the ones who are not (yet) familliar with this kind of teaching. Blended learning requires different competences than traditional approaches. The differences start at the reflection that teachers do when planning and continues with implementation, for which some teachers also need to sharpen their digital skills. The teachers of all partner schools took part in training, where they learned about the basics of blended learning and where they also experienced blended leatning firsthand.

Introductory workshop for slovenian teachers

What follows?

In 2023 teachers will test the blended approach in chosen subjects.
Based on their experience an evaluation report will be created. Examples of their lesson plans will also be collected into a compendium.
8 new schools from Slovenia are entering the project. Their teachers will also undergo the teacher training.
