Title Internationalisation of Electronic Communications Training (IntEleCT)
Project Number CZ/09/LLP-LdV/TOI/134001
Project Type Transfer of Innovation
Country CZ-Czech Republic
The principal output of the project will be a set of six LLL courses transferred from the Train2Cert project, covering the area of
electronic communications, offering a variety of available languages (EN, CZ, PL, SK, FR, IT, SI, ES) according to the selection of the
national partners. A multilingual tool for continuing education in the said area has not been prepared in such extent and quality so far.
The continuous development in the different areas of ICT brings lots of benefits into everyday life of modern society, with many different applications. However, the same phenomenon causes that the professional knowledge is becoming obsolete very quickly. There is a strong need for a learning tool that would help the engineers, technicians and other specialists (but not only them) to overcome the possible gap between their knowledge and the state-of-the-art.
The major objective of the project is to update the complex study material that consists of six different courses covering the area of electronic communications, supplemented by a set of appropriate certificates, and to transfer these learning tools to national conditions and environments. The said instruments will help especially the employees and specialists in the respective area who need re-qualification or knowledge update to keep and/or improve their position in the job market by the means of lifelong learning; this is particularly important from the viewpoint of financial recession and alleviation of its consequences.
The principal output of the project will be a set of six LLL courses transferred from the Train2Cert project, covering the area of electronic communications, offering a variety of available languages (EN, CZ, PL, SK, FR, IT, SI, ES) according to the selection of the national partners. A multilingual tool for continuing education in the said area has not been prepared in such extent and quality so far.
Another output will be a corresponding set of certificates transferred from the InCert project, suitable for evaluation of the trainees after taking the said courses, also available in the listed languages.
Both products will be primarily developed as online applications within a learning management system that will offer also tutoring and supervision capabilities; however, a laboratory computer training part will be included in the schedule of the courses, which will be also necessary for the certification process.
Secondary outputs will include support instruments for project management and for the transferred courses; some of the necessary tools will be transferred from the previous project ELefANTC.
The project consortium is based in 7 countries (CZ, PL, SK, FR, IT, SI, ES) and it consists of 8 partner institutions. The pedagogic and didactic skills of higher education institutions are complemented with lifelong learning competences of a LLL association and professional know-how of an industrial company. The industrial partner will be the key player in expert testing of the updated courses, even before their release for use by the pilot trainees; it can also precisely evaluate real needs of the target group. The LLL association will perform activities related to continuous education and it can facilitate the contacts with the target groups. The coordinator has also a team of skilled programmers who are able to perform integration of the updated materials into the online (LMS) environment.
All partners within the present consortium have previous experience with LdaV projects focused on continuous and online education (some of them even with their coordination).
About 300 trainees will be involved in the pilot testing phase. They will provide the project consortium with feedback that will be useful for making possible changes to the final version of the materials. By the end of the project, thanks to the established relations among partner institutions, the pilot phase should seamlessly transit into routine performing of educational activities focused onto the selected target group.
