Title Train the trainer module
Product Type website
The Train-the-Trainer module on mobile learning for distance teaching/training of apprentices is a user-generated co-production between teachers and lecturers from six educational institutions in five European countries.
The materials in this module have been developed during several "trial runs" in Germany, Spain, Turkey and Denmark in the period February 2009 until May 2010. During these trial runs with vocational teachers, in-company trainers and students, the pedagogical and technological potentials and barriers of working with smartphones to support teaching and learning processes were identified.
This website targets vocational teachers and in-company trainers who want to strengthen their competencies in teaching and training apprentices from a distance through mobile technologies. Trainer-of-trainers and producers of learning materials are also welcome to use these materials, as long as there is a reference to learning-at-distance.eu and the authors of the subjects.
Target group Teachers and trainers
Your pathway through the Train-the-trainer module
The module contains subjects relevant for both beginners and experienced teachers/trainers in distance teaching/training with mobile technologies.
The module's subjects contain theoretical background knowledge, as well as exercises and references. All subjects may be downloaded freely and adapted or translated to own purposes, as long as there is a reference to www.learning-at-distance.eu as well as the respective author of the subject.
1. Start the module with a screening of your experience and needed competencies. The screening result will indicate which subjects we recommend that you choose, in order to achieve empowerment in mobile teaching.
2. Thus, you can build your own module, depending on your needs and time frame.
As a trainer-of-trainers, you can compose a course, specifically targeting your participants' needs.
3. After having worked through the chosen subjects, it is recommended to end the module by designing a learning unit for your own practice.
This learning unit is meant as a self-evaluation of your pathway through the module, as you can check yourself on the competencies you have achieved during your way through the module.
At the same time the learning unit is a tangible product and can be used in your teaching/training.
