Quality recommendations with a focus on the learning dimension

Claudia Ball, DEKRA Akademie GmbH (DE) and the ICT-DRV project consortium; May 2015
  
The ICT-DRV project synopsis „On the way to high-quality technology-supported training within professional driver qualification” provides a synoptic overview about the results of this European project implemented by partners from all over Europe and Canada on the realisation of e-learning and simulator training within professional drivers’ vocational education and training in Europe. It provides a summary of the status quo with regard to technology-support in training as well as the related scientific fundamentals and describes the major practical examples worked on during the project realisation in order to test different instructional design approaches for technology-supported training in practice.
  
Finally a number of policy recommendations are introduced with regard to a high-quality integration of e-learning and simulator training into regulated professional driver education and training such as under EC Directive 2003/59.

The definition of indicators for a high-quality integration of technology-support into professional driver training has been the major aim of the ICT-DRV project. The set of indicators presented in this paper is therefore a result of the different steps implemented by the ICT-DRV consortium incl. research of the status quo of technology-support within professional driver training, investigation of the scientific landscape in this field, analysis of competence requirements on trainers and the implementation of pilot trainings applying and testing instructional design principles on the target group professional drivers.

The ICT-DRV quality indicators are directed to all groups of stakeholders involved into professional driver training. This includes vocational education and training (VET) providers, drivers themselves and their representatives, employers, social partners, e-learning and simulator/ software developers, researchers in this area, authorities and policy makers. They are meant as a tool in the development and in the (self-) evaluation of (existing) structures and approaches to realise technology-support within professional driver training.

National scenarios on the (possible) realisation of the ICT-DRV quality indicators in selected European countries

The ICT-DRV project partners prepared national scenarios in order to reflect on the (possible) realisation of the ICT-DRV quality indicators within their national contexts and as far as possible based on already existing structures and systems. The national scenarios have been prepared for:
