MoBlend – Educational Resource to enhance Virtual & Blended Work-Based Learning
Project Ref. No. 2020-1-IT01-KA226-VET-009074
Funded by the Erasmus+ Programme: KA226 – Partnerships for Digital Education Readiness in the VET field in response to COVID-19
Implementation period: March 2021 – February 2023
MoBlend Project is designed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, which strongly affected not only economic life, but also work-based learning. Due to the lockdown, many companies had to temporarily stop their activity (or find ways to perform it online) and thus there was no possibility for VET students to get involved in internships and work-based learning opportunities.
The main objective of MoBlend is to improve the quality of Virtual and Blended WBL initiatives and to guarantee equal and inclusive access and participation to ensure its inclusiveness, especially for students with fewer opportunities and special needs
The specific objectives of the project include are:
- Support VET Students, VET School Staff and Company Tutors in improving the quality of Virtual and Blended Work-based learning (V&BWBL) through the design of a tailored learning course on digital tools and methods of V&BWBL
- Promote the inclusiveness of V&BWBL through the design of an ad-hoc and user-friendly tool for the evaluation and validation of VET experiences
- Deepen the interest and trust in V&BWBL, affirming their value and match with the requests of the labour market
- Develop a cross-border and cross-sector synergy with the purpose of creating innovative uses of Virtual&Blended Work-Based Learning tailored to the needs of students with fewer opportunities and special needs, even afterwards the COVID era.
