A College Grad May Have Student Debt And No Job, But They're Still Very Lucky

A College Grad May Have Student Debt And No Job, But They're Still Very Lucky | Vocational education and training - VET | Scoop.it

I asked children if they could send a message, any message, to you, what would it be? And here is the winning theme: You are lucky. Yes, you with the student loans and no jobs, you are lucky. A girl in Chad, in the West African nation of Chad, is more likely to die in childbirth than to see school past eighth grade. She is more likely to die in childbirth than to get to the eighth grade and beyond. So that's the benchmark of what I consider lucky and privileged. And each one of you who is about to graduate today is inordinately more advantaged than many of your peers in the world.

Trends 2015: the changing context of European higher education

Trends 2015: the changing context of European higher education | Vocational education and training - VET | Scoop.it

May 07, 2015

EUA has launched the Trends 2015 report, which presents the universities’ perceptions of the changes that have taken place in European higher education over the past five years, particularly in relation to learning and teaching. Based on survey responses of 451 higher education institutions from 46 countries (48 higher education systems), the report outlines the changing context in which higher education institutions operate.

 

...

 

The quality of learning and teaching is receiving increased attention and support by the academic staff and the institutional leadership. As examples, 60% have a centralised unit for pedagogical staff development, and 63% have institution-wide quality assurance policies and processes. The implementation of learning outcomes has continued to progress since 2010, with 64% of institutions responding that these have been introduced for all courses. Institutions are generally positive about the benefits of learning outcomes. It is clear, however, that in many institutions their implementation appears to have taken place without changing in radical ways how curricula, including examinations, are developed. Therefore this area is still a work in progress.

Video. The short road to self-employment in Somalia

Video. The short road to self-employment in Somalia | Vocational education and training - VET | Scoop.it
In Somalia, decades of conflict and natural calamities have frustrated the normal coping strategies of its otherwise resilient population. To mitigate the impact of recurrent shocks to Somali livelihoods, the ICRC helps vulnerable groups start small businesses by offering vocational training to improve their skills, and then providing them with the capital investment or tools they need to start the business. This video shows examples of such programmes – training of young men as mechanics, carpenters and electricians and women as tailors.

The Surprising Science Of Workplace Training

The Surprising Science Of Workplace Training | Vocational education and training - VET | Scoop.it
Canadian Vocational Association / Association canadienne de la formation professionnelle's insight:

The problem with workplace training is that it seems so simple: Show employees what to do, have them practice it a few times, and you’re done. But “training is not as intuitive as it may seem. There is a science of training that shows that there is a right way and a wrong way to design, deliver, and implement a training program.
