We had a successful meeting with many fruitful discussions. The meeting familiarised the partners with current status of the EDU-VET project and helped to get into a smooth working atmosphere. Firstly, the Summary Research Report (IO1) were discussed. Moreover, the Learning Outcome Matrix and the structure of the EDU-VET Curriculum (IO2) were presented and the partners discussed ideas and the future work. Therefore, the partners focused the development of courses for online and classroom scenarios (IO3). Besides, first examples of best practices of the Online Showroom were also presented (IO5).  The work plan was also established and the importance of dissemination was emphasised. The financial and administrative structure of the project and its reporting were addressed and discussed. Finally, the meeting evaluation was conducted.

We are looking forward to the future project work!

Article about EDU-VET is online

In the new issue of the WorldSkills Germany Magazine, Prof. Dr. Marc Beutner, coordinator of the EDU-VET project, reports on digitisation in vocational schools and provides insights into the EDU-VET project. At this point Prof. Dr. Marc Beutner not only highlights the aims of the EDU-VET project, he also pleads for the anchoring of a lifelong development process in context of the digital transformation, especially in the vocational training context: “First of all, we need to ensure that the digitalisation process is not only a matter of the vocational school system, but also of the vocational training system itself. We would like to establish the didactic digitization approach in this project,” says Prof. Dr. Marc Beutner.
