Importance of Collaborative Tools for Teaching and Learning Process
by Dr. Muhammad Mujtaba Asad





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.

Background


This concept paper is prepared for the CPSC webinar on the topic “Outreach Program in TVET”. The three main goals of an outreach program are to improve learning, promoting community engagement, and strengthening communities through addressing their needs. An outreach program creates a partnership between the communities and the TVET institutions. Such programs build on each other's strengths and develop their roles as change agents for improving TVET students’ knowledge, civic responsibility, and providing solutions to communities’ problems and needs.


The outreach program provides students with an opportunity to better understand their course content, make them aware of the real world problems, valuing the inputs provided by multiple teachers and also developing their career. Students are always found to be enthusiastic for training in an outreach program with a sense of growing confidence in their abilities and development of skills practices. It is well known fact that the opportunity to apply learned knowledge and skills in real world settings will enhance the students’ occupational competencies.


Outreach programs are now incorporated within the TVET curricula in the most of the TVET systems in the Asia and The Pacific. The outreach program strengthen knowledge and skills gained in the institutions by providing different kind of services to the communities. This will also ultimately enhance the TVET institutions image and gain respect and recognition from the stakeholders and the community people. It is also important for the TVET institutions to evaluate the impact of an outreach program on academic development, personal development, and civic responsibility of TVET students.


Assessing the real needs of community and addressing them, is one of the important tasks for TVET institutions. TVET educations becomes successful, if only those needs identified in the community is addressed by the outreach program.


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


This webinar session is designed to provide concept and knowledge on outreach program, its management, and conduction. It will also provide step by step guidelines to conduct outreach program, collecting data of program and skill & knowledge transferred to the community, linking community with the TVET students, and preparing outreach program report.



Objective


  • Sharing the concept and management guidelines on conducting outreach program for the TVET institutions.

Co-Curriculum Activities in Politeknik Sultan Haji Ahmad Shah (POLISAS), Kuantan, Malaysia
(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


This webinar session is designed to provide understanding and knowledge on the importance of CCA & ECA, effective implementation and organization. Webinar will also discuss the role of Principal and teacher in CCA & ECA.

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

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.
