Which competences for #VET professionals are finally necessary in order to be able to follow the upcoming challenges of online teaching and training?

What was main challenges the #VET professionals faced during the Covid – 19 lock down?

All of the study #DigiVET project procedures – the online survey, extra interviews, and focus group – summarize a very consistent image of trainers’ perspectives in VET. For most, the move to online learning was unexpected and short-lived, but it was well-managed after some initial challenges.

The results of the Cypriot #DigiVET research underlines that while trainers mainly want to have more information and guidelines on existing tools or methods to support the provision of learning content, experts and researchers in the field see the main challenge in the lack of the necessary competencies in digital teaching and learning.

It’s interesting to note how the main achievement of the new learning setting, according to most trainers, is that they were forced to deal with new forms of learning, allowing both learners and trainees to improve their competencies in digital teaching and learning. However, the new method of teaching and training presented significant challenges for both VET professionals and learners.
