Case study: Getting ready for digital education

A transnational project with partners from Austria, Denmark, Germany, Norway, Portugal and the UK, the Digi-VET project helps TVET institutions to improve their digital education readiness. A web-based mapping tool scores the institution, while also providing results in a SWOT model for further preparations. Looking at the institutional holistically, the project works closely with the management, teachers, students and their external partners.

Part of being ready is understanding what open educational resources for creating learning scenarios are available. The project equips teachers with the skills to develop digital material that is suitable at their institution. The digital pedagogical strategy is based on the local conditions, needs and available resources.

Digi-VET also enables digital e-visits to business, thus paving the way for industry involvement in TVET delivery. Each company has an ‘e-reception’ area on the tool where students can meet industry representatives online or peruse information relating to a specific industry.
