TECHNOLOGY-SUPPORTED VOCATIONAL TRAINING FOR PROFESSIONAL DRIVERS IN EUROPE … A MATTER OF QUALITY

12/13 February 2015, Potsdam (DE),
the conference is held in EN and DE


Vocational education and training has been assigned with the challenging task to prepare all professional drivers in Europe for continuously changing job requirements and to keep them qualified for their job. Technology-supported training offers additional opportunities in order to reach this goal and to achieve the high quality of training necessary in order to ensure drivers employability and to make a contribution to safety on European roads.

The ICT-DRV conference provides an inside view into the current situation of computer-based distance learning and simulator-based professional driver qualification and discusses a number of questions related to a high-quality and learning oriented integration of such training approaches into professional driver training praxis in Europe.

  • How is technology-supported training realised in different EU Member States? What experiences are made with such training approaches? How is it integrated into the realisation of EC Directive 2003/59?
  • How can professional driver training benefit from the application of technology-based training tools? How is an added value reached?
  • What means “quality” in the context of such technology-supported training approaches? How can high quality be reached and ensured in order to meet the needs and aims of learners, employers and public authorities?
  • What is needed from the different players involved into the realisation of professional driver training in order to make effective use of the opportunities opened up by technology-based training and to overcome obstacles and challenges?
  • How is it possible to remove the scepticism surrounding learning technology?

 
This interdisciplinary conference aims to provide a platform for VET providers, public bodies, researchers, developers of simulators and e-learning, social partners, employers, and other groups of stakeholders in order to explore and discuss opportunities, limitations and requirements to enhance professional drivers’ vocational education and training effectively with high-quality computer-based distance learning and simulator-based training. A special focus is placed on the expedient integration of such training approaches into the framework of Directive 2003/59/EC.
