Technical Innovation in Blended Learning (TIBL)

Working with a tablet during distance learning

The project developes C-VET training courses for training performed in formal and in non-formal C-VET education. These courses use Blended Learning as a technology enhanced method and focus on the use of multiple devices (as used by the trainees an everyday life). The innovation is the implementation of a trainee-focusing pedagogical framework based on heutagogy, the development of an all-encompassing quality enhancement framework (including also the pedagogy) and the approach to the diversity of various technical equipment (the multiple devices). The project is complementary to a Grundvig Multilateral project by transferring the theoretical developed outputs to a practical implementation in a different (but similar) educational sector.

The project combines knowledge and experience from VET training institutions with the research and innovation potential of universities.

  1. The applicant SAFA is an important Spanish school foundation focusing on school and vocational education,
  2. EFQBL is a VET and trainers education organisation,
  3. DigiLab from the University La Sapienza and the
  4. University of Aveiro are specialised in innovation in technology enhanced training and the related pedagogy.
  5. SADE is a specialist in Distance Learning and quality enhancement frameworks.

These participants ensure a consortium well-distributed in Europe.

The project results impact to the trainer community in Europe providing innovative and modern training (based on Blended Learning and including workplace-based training) with a technology enhanced approach to training using multiple devices.
