Teachers, Trainers, Instructors and practitioners of TVET


The education space, in the past one year, has witnessed tremendous innovation. This phenomenon has spurred great advancements in the teaching and learning process. We have seen tremendous innovation in the field of education in the last few years. This has led to a tectonic shift in the teaching and learning process, especially in the last one year. Internet based learning or e-learning in TVET (Technical Vocational Education and Training) has become current trend and requirements of future needs of industry due to disruption of industrial revolution 4.0. The world of education is changing due to the COVID 19 pandemic. As we all know this is an unprecedented time with COVID19 impacting our society at all levels. A record number of students and teachers are out of school with an estimated 1.5 Billion school age students out of school around the world.

Technology is driven by TVET, since TVET not only spawns technology by pull of demand and innovation, but also diffuses it by way of transfer of knowledge and skills. The TVET sector prepares youth for specific trades, crafts and careers at different levels from a trade, a craft, technician, or a professional position in tourism, agriculture etc. The majority of vocations are typically based on manual or practical actions, traditionally non-academic, related to a specific trade, occupation, or, vacation.

Technology has become an increasingly important part of students’ lives beyond school, and even within the classroom it can also help increase their understanding of complex concepts or encourage collaboration among peers. Because of these benefits, current educational practice suggests that teachers implement some form of technology in their classrooms – but many teachers face difficulties in doing so. Cost, access, and time often form considerable barriers to classroom implementation, but another obstacle is a lack of knowledge regarding how technology can best be used to benefit students across diverse subject matters. The rapid evolution of instructional design, its relative novelty, and trends impacting it serve to cloud understanding and complicate practice. To strengthen the blended learning system, TVET practitioners consider technological skills, technology access and accessibility in designing blended learning modules for a course. For example, some of the common tools used to enhance a blended course are online videos, flipped learning, social groups, bookmarking tools etc.

The objectives of the program are to build TVET practitioners’ knowledge on adult learning and hone understanding of widely used instructional design models. The program intends to equip the participants with skills to design and analyze professional learning resources in the TVET sector. The participants will learn the essentials of designing and developing measurable instructional programs informed by fundamental learning theories to meet a variety of learner needs. The participants will be able to design and develop online learning management systems with the use of ICT. The TVET practitioners will have the opportunity to apply the principles of instructional design following a step by step model from needs assessment to evaluation, and build a solid understanding of the process of a learning design.
