Project results:

  • Training material on OER and sustainability models. Training material will be developed on-line, partially as OER, with self-learning mode and face to face training option, providing existing successful OER – based sustainability models, interactive tasks and presentations in video and audio formats with explanations and examples;
  • Training material on ICT tools to develop and adapt OER. Training material will be developed on-line, partially as OER, with self-learning mode and face to face training option, providing interactive tasks on ICT tools suitable for OER development and adaptation, including presentations in video and audio formats with explanations and examples;
  • Training material on innovative curriculum designing for work – based learning for CVET, VET and adult education. Training material will be developed on-line, partially as OER, with self-learning mode and face to face training option, providing content on curriculum designing methodology, innovative solutions (virtual mobility option, self-learning curriculum design, integration of social networking and collaboration), interactive tasks and presentations in video and audio formats with explanations and examples;
  • 48 OER in the national and English languages (24 created and 24 adapted). All partner institutions will develop at least 4 OER and will adapt another 4 OER developed by partner institutions to their national languages and contexts. CVET, VET and adult educators will collaboratively develop and adapt OER. Each OER will be an artifact that allows either a short lecture or a video on a given subject. OER will be integrated into curriculum;
  • Curriculum for work – based learning for CVET, VET and adult education using OER, innovative tools and sustainability models. Each partner institution develops on-line curriculum of 20 hours using OER (6 on-line courses, each maintaining at least 8 resources developed or adapted in their national language), ICT tools and innovative solutions on a chosen topic. 1/4 of curriculum is developed as OER (in the national and English languages) and exchanged among partner institution websites or learning environments. Curriculum is either a part of existing course/ module within the institution or a separate on-line course for CVET, VET or adult education. Each course will maintain 10 hours of theoretical material and 10 hours of practical learning assignments.
