(Impact on Students Development)

by Mohd Azman bin Mohd Alwy





Background


Co-curricular and extra-curricular activities take care of the students’ different developmental needs such as their sense of moral values and attitudes, skills and creativity. Through their participation in Co-curricular activities, students can learn to communicate, to cooperate with other people and in addition to enrich their life experience. The co-curricular and extra-curricular activities have also facilitated brain development, knowledge acquisition, personality development, and civic development of the students.


Co-curricular Activities or CCAs (sometimes known as Co-curricular Education) refer to those activities and programs that complement the formal education of the students in educational institutions. These activities are usually connected with academic matters and are organized or designed to help the students to have a better understanding of the course, and facilitate their diverse skill development tasks.


Extra-curricular Activities or ECAs (sometimes known as Extra-academic Activities) usually refer to those activities performed by the students that take place outside the regular school curriculum. These activities are generally voluntary and the students do not receive any academic credit or grades out of their participation.


This concept paper is prepared for the CPSC webinar to share knowledge on effective implementation of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities in TVET institutions. Thus, CPSC is conducting the webinar to make aware and realize the need of having co-curricular and extra-curricular activities in TVET school to fulfill the aims and objectives of life.



Focus

Background


Alumni is one of the important components and is well-established in the TVET sector. Not all TVET institutions have equally understood the value of alumni and this perception needs to be changed because of many benefits it provides. Understanding alumni engagement in the TVET management is vital for the TVET institutions for many reasons like it increases the employability, enhances TVET institute image, it can support in maintaining quality education and provides materials & funds to the institutes. TVET professionals need to broaden the scope and move the focus away from funds only and more on the non-monetary support roles played by TVET alumni. TVET institutions and alumni relationships should be converted into an intentional and mutually beneficial partnership with the purpose of students’ success and betterment of the TVET institutions. Alumni engagement impacts positively on all sides involved- the TVET institution, the alumni and current students. When the TVET institutions go through the international institutional accreditation, alumni plays an important role in convincing the accreditors on their roles, importance, and activities carried by them.


Alumni are seen as valuable as they are the key sources of information to define institute-level strategies and enhance study programs. By having alumni, TVET institutions can develop or revise curriculum involving the alumni members as they know as equally as the industry experts the demand of the latest skills and knowledge in the labor market.


Alumni are one of the key stakeholders for TVET institutions and their contribution to the achievement of TVET institutions strategic goals is evident. In the Asia and Pacific, it is observed that countries like the Philippines, Malaysia, Thailand, and Singapore and their TVET institutions have given high importance to alumni and they are managing it very well. Thus, the time has come for all the TVET intuitions to give priority on establishing alumni and get maximum benefits from it. Therefore, CPSC has designed the webinar to share knowledge and practices of Alumni management in TVET institutions and how to strengthen the relation between the two.



Focus


This webinar session is designed to provide concept, good practices, and management of Alumni for maximizing its benefits to the TVET institutions. The Alumni & TVET institutions roles and strategies on strengthening relationships will be explained in the webinar.



Objectives


  • Share the concept, good practices, and management of Alumni
  • Provide strategies on maximizing the relationship between the Alumni and TVET institutions

Background


COVID-19 could be the mega maleficent of the 21st Century with almost all countries shutting TVET institutions to break the chain of transmission. However, the training and education of our youth has to continue because staying idle is contrary to the constitutional foundation of civil societies.

The outbreak of coronavirus disease was recorded rising in the world since December 2019. As a result some institutions started offering online education to their students, the majority of the students have not yet benefited from distance learning. Since youth are our human capital, we must use alternative way to offer education to them in order to continue their learning.

In April 2020, a rapid assessment survey conducted by the ILO-UNESCO-WBG on TVET and described the current state of TVET during COVID-19 period. In this report, current TVET trends highlighted and stated that the TVET sector should have 4E (E-Content, E-Learning, Education Technology and Entrepreneurship).

The report also highlighted the gaps in TVET during the current situation. The one of the gaps is to provide continuous training to TVET providers to facilitate the development and delivery of their online session. It is also emphasized that TVET has to empower TVET providers to develop their own e-Learning system.

In this context, Colombo Plan Staff College is planning to organize a webinar on “Develop Online Learning Management System for TVET Institute”. This webinar will be dedicated to CPSC member countries TVET practitioners to build the capacity on how to develop and setup a learning management system for a TVET institute by using Moodle. The main purpose of this webinar is to share simple steps to setup online course management, course administration and users profile etc. The online Moodle application is the best tool to build native learning management system without programming skills. After completion of this webinar, the participants are able to create and setup their own Moodle. The outcome will be aligned different interpretations and expectations of digital innovation concept from the various stakeholders’ perspectives.


Focus


This webinar session is designed to provide concept, setup, and administration of learning management system to the TVET institutions.



Objectives


  • To explain the importance of online resources for TVET institutions
  • To demonstrate how to setup a learning management system - Moodle
