Product Learning Paths Catalogue
Title Learning Paths Catalogue
Product Type open and distance learning
The Learning Paths Catalogue is an additional element of the VESTA-GIS Training Framework developed to better exploit and rationalise the VESTA-GIS training offer. This also in accordance with the idea, developed along the project life, to propose VESTA-GIS Curricula bringing to get the VESTA-GIS endorsement.
Different learning paths, aimed at acquiring specific skills on GIS/SDI application and policies, are proposed to the VESTA-GIS Network members, made accessible from the VESTA-GIS Training Framework.
Each VESTA-GIS learning path is detailed through a template giving a general overview of the objectives, the target audience and the courses taken into consideration for the training. Courses proposed and forming the learning paths are all from the VESTA-GIS catalogue. Hyperlinks from the learning path to the course catalogue allows the user to consult the full metadata for each course considered in the learning path.
Before having access to the catalogue, a skill competence tests is proposed to the user, to verify the prerequisites of simulated learning paths throughout the Course Catalogue, before starting them.
The VESTA-GIS Training Framework offers also a methodology (Learning Path Builder) to allow the definition of customized “learning paths”. That is an additional options for the users of the VESTA-GIS Training Framework, in particular for those people who will act as tutors for possible training actions.
The catalogue mainly addresses two target groups:
1. people acting as tutors in training actions on GI and related application fields(i.e. Universities, companies, etc.), who have an opportunity to advertise their training offer in a European wide environment
2. people wishing to improve their knowledge and skills in such areas, as well as organisations or companies who need some specilised training opportunities for their employees
Result A tool to test different learning paths, aimed at acquiring specific skills on GIS/SDI application and policies, a self-assessment test to assess prerequisites before acceeding the training material, a methodology to define customised learning paths.
