Digital education in initial and continuing vocational education and training

The digitalisation of the economy and the mediatisation of all areas of society lead to new forms of information, of communication, and of knowledge transfer. This fundamentally changes the professional and working world.

Therefore, this session discusses the implementation, potential and challenges of selected applications which highlight digital ways of learning in vocational education and training (VET). It aims to provide an overview of recent developments and questions some of the assumptions made about digital learning in VET. The session showcases some successful examples of projects and initiatives that focus on digitalised learning environments in the areas of vocational orientation, initial vocational training, further vocational training and training for training staff. It will provide an opportunity for an exchange on future developments and challenges amongst different groups of stakeholders.
