Background


The global impact of Covid-19 is multifaceted and is clearly manifested in almost all sectors, particularly the health, economic and education sectors. Since the announcement of the virus as a pandemic in March 2020, there have been a plethora of daily reports on its impact on the lives of millions across the world. Accordingly, every country’s primary concern has become to diminish the spread of the virus and alleviate its effects on the society in general, and the most vulnerable communities in particular.

In April 2020, a rapid assessment survey was 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).

Technology has become an increasingly important part of students’ lives beyond school, and even within the classroom it can also help increase their understanding of complex concepts or encourage collaboration among peers. Because of these benefits, current educational practice suggests that teachers implement some form of technology in their classrooms – but many teachers face difficulties in doing so. Cost, access, and time often form considerable barriers to classroom implementation, but another obstacle is a lack of knowledge regarding how technology can best be used to benefit students across diverse subject matter.

In this context, Colombo Plan Staff College is planning to organize a webinar on “Use of Mentimeter for Learner Centered Learning''. This webinar will be dedicated to CPSC member countries TVET practitioners to build the capacity on how to use Mentimeter to teach and connect remotely with your students. Learn how to create a presentation, what question types are particularly useful for teachers and how to share it with your students. The other objective of the webinar is to share Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) and Substitution, Augmentation, Modification, and Redefinition (SAMR) Models to enhance teaching and learning process. The online collaborative tools help to engage learners through innovative presentations. After completion of this webinar, the participants are able to create and setup their own mentimeter presentation. Furthermore, understand the concept and importance of TPACK and SAMR models. The outcome will be aligned with different interpretations and expectations of digital innovation concept from the various stakeholders’ perspectives.



Focus


This webinar aims to build up the capacity of TVET practitioners on how to use collaborative teaching and learning tools to teach and to connect remotely with the students and its importance in teaching and learning process. Learn how to create a presentation, what question types are particularly useful for teachers and how to share it with the students. This webinar will also share ideas on Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) and Substitution, Augmentation, Modification, and Redefinition (SAMR) Model to enhance teaching and learning process.



Objectives


  • To explain the importance of collaborative tools in the teaching and learning process
  • To demonstrate how to use and setup an interactive presentation – Mentimeter
  • To share the concept of Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) and Substitution, Augmentation, Modification, and Redefinition (SAMR) models

Occupational Safety and Health in TVET
by Engr. Sanyog Bhattarai





Background


This concept paper is prepared for the CPSC webinar on the topic “Occupational Safety and Health in TVET”. The skilled workforce are the major contributors to the economic and social development of the contemporary global society. Unfortunately, their health and safety are often negatively influenced by the working environment, social factors, and behaviours. Although the employers are primarily responsible for providing healthy and safe working environments, the workers are also expected to follow the OSH rules and regulations to prevent work-related injuries and diseases.


Occupational health is a discipline devoted to prevention and management of occupational diseases, accidents and disabilities and to elimination of occupational factors and conditions hazardous to health and safety at work. The goal of an occupational safety and health program is to foster a safe and healthy occupational environment for the students and teachers. OSH also protects all the general public who may be affected by the occupational environment.


The program addresses the incidence of occupational diseases and work-related diseases and injuries among workers through health promotion and protection in all workplaces. It aims to improve workers' access to basic occupational health services at the working contexts.


In TVET, Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) is an interdisciplinary activity concerned with the prevention of occupational risks and hazards inherent to each occupation. OSH programs objectives are to:

  • Secure the health, safety and welfare of employees and other people at work
  • Protect the public from the health and safety risks of commercial activities
  • Eliminate workplace risks and hazards

While TVET education is concerned with the acquisition of knowledge and skills for the world of work, occupational safety and health (OSH) aims at the protection and promotion of safety and health at the workplace. Thus, it is up most important and urgent to train TVET students in OSH at the TVET institute level and after the graduation the students will comply with the OSH on the job.


Thus, it is very important to integrate OSH components in the TVET education and train the students on it and make it habit for the students to follow the rules and regulations of OSH.



Focus


This webinar session is designed to provide concept and knowledge on occupational safety and health, its management in TVET institutions, and need of OSH training to the students. It will also provide knowledge on different subject-wise safety measures & health and provide subject-wise good practices found in the TVET institutions.



Objective


  • Sharing the concept and management guidelines on occupational safety and health program for the TVET institutions.

Skills for Cooperative Management

Date: May 11, 2021 /
Program Type: Webinar /





Background


The establishment of Cooperative societies were created long before the advent of the fair trade movement to help workers improve their livelihoods and protect their interests. Cooperatives are organizations of people who have the same needs. Cooperatives are operating in an environment that requires exceptional or transformational leadership qualities and changed management systems for the success of associations of cooperatives today.


Transforming federations requires change. One of the perceived bottlenecks in effecting change in federations relates to the lack of change leaders and a lack of capacity to develop a vision and implement change. Transformative leaders need to have a clear vision, a solid target objectives for the federation and have the strong motivation and leadership skills to drive change.


Leadership is about managing change and guiding growth in fluid environments. Leadership requires a ‘change capable culture’ that gives space to lead. Moreover, to sustainably grow, federations or cooperatives are shifting from viewing leadership development as a “nice to have” to a “need to have”. Leadership development programs are mission critical to federations’ or cooperatives’ organizational success.


Thus, CPSC is conducting the webinar to make aware and realize the need of having outreach programs in each subject, manage it, and obtain the results from it.



Focus


The webinar session is designed to provide a pIatform for reflecting on the principles of cooperatives/federations and discuss how the leadership and management dynamics and skills can contribute to achieving the objectives/targets of the cooperative/federation.



Objective


The program aims for participants to:

  • reflect on the principles of cooperatives/federations;
  • apply methods on how the leadership and management dynamics and skills can contribute to achieving the objectives/targets of the cooperative/federation;
  • identify issues and goals of managing change and improving adaptability through managing skills and strategies.
