UNESCO IITE at the Experts’ workshop on TVET teaching with technologies

From 14 to 16 March 2016, the Experts’ Workshop was held at the UNESCO-UNEVOC International Center in Bonn, Germany. 9 experts met in Bonn to provide input to the guiding framework for developing a teacher resource material envisaged to enhance the quality of teaching and learning in Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) using technologies.

Through the project, UNEVOC aims to make available a guide document which will support capacity development and enable teachers to integrate technologies in vocational training pedagogy and didactics in the different learning settings. The document is envisaged to help expand an understanding, motivation and capacities on the available tools, technologies and resources for TVET. Most importantly, the project supports the overall development of TVET teachers and trainers once it will be clear what competencies are necessary to support effective teaching with technologies and what purposes can the use of technologies in TVET serve to improve quality and support the achievement of learning outcomes.

Head a.i. of UNESCO IITE prof. Alexander Khoroshilov delivered two presentations regarding UNESCO IITE experience in the fields of ICT in TVET and UNESCO ICT-CFT adaptation and deployment, and the issues of ICT-Integrated pedagogy. He also participated in the discussions on approaches to the implementation of the project, content of the Guidebook and other important issues. The workshop concluded with a rich set of recommendations that will guide the development of the final output of the project.
