The Theme Room Training 2020 framework – Promoting digital competences of vocational teachers and trainers.
Research in Taccle CPD and its predecessor projects has shown us that in a VET context, rather than a handbook, it is more useful to link the promotion of digital competences to vocational teaching/learning arrangements and to current digital transformations in working life. Also, during the work of the TACCLE 4 CPD project, the project team considered that the Theme Room training (that was initiated and put into practice during the later phase of the Learning Layers project) was an interesting case of proving training for all training staff of a VET provider.
In the light of the above this report outlines a new framework – Theme Room Training 2020 – for supporting continuing professional development (CPD) for vocational teachers and trainers with focus on promoting their digital competences. The main elements of the framework are the following thematic blocks:
Theme One – Challenges: Digitization and digital transformation in the field of VET;
Theme Two – Old and young learners in vocational education and training (VET):
Theme Three – Exploring innovation paths to promote digital competences in vocational learning;
Theme Four – Using TACCLE4 CPD Routemap for future-oriented planning and training.
The sections of the framework discus these themes from the perspective of VET providers and with focus on vocational learning culture. Moreover, each section has been equipped with a commentary space that points to corresponding Annexes to this report. These provide further input to discussion, reflection and shared learning.
