TIBL – an innovative project presented at the CSEDU
The CSEDU is the International Conference on Computer Supported Education (1) and is a meeting place for presenting and discussing new educational environments, best practices and case studies on innovative technology-based learning strategies, institutional policies on computer supported education.
2018, the conference took place in Funchal, Madeira and had the 10th year’s anniversary. A special session was foreseen to the topic “Blended Learning and Quality Enhancement – BLQE 2018” (2), chaired by Ebba Ossiannilsson (The Swedish Association for Distance Education, SADE).
The consortium submitted a paper, that was accepted and presented by Peter Mazohl (European Foundation for Quality in Blended Learning, EFQBL) in the frame of this session.
The presentation focused on the Blended Learning situation as described in this project, with the special focus on SMEs. In the project, several dependencies and obstacles to perform blended learning courses in C-VET (especially in SMEs) were identified and presented at the conference.
The audience agreed strongly to the mentioned problems and the need of the execution of this project. During the discussion, interesting feedback was given by some listeners of the presentation, and this made clear, that the mentioned problems are not isolated in Europe but exist as well in other parts of the world, for example in South America (for example in Brazil).
