Background

SVEA addresses the collaboration and web 2.0 skills of teachers and trainers in both Vocational Education and Training (VET) and adult training institutions, with a special focus on personnel and organizational development.  Providing these institutions with the means for target oriented communication and knowledge exchange, will stimulate active co-development of organizational processes and tools, and will at the same time enable teachers and trainers to use those tools to empower learner-centered and self paced teaching. 

Output

SVEA will develop an online platform offering custom web 2.0 tools for trainers and teachers, combined with both an online and a face to face training program to help the target group master these web 2.0 applications. Guidelines and training material to guarantee successful implementation will also be designed.

Result

SVEA’s goal is to cultivate new work processes and communication strategies through the use of net-based technology. Upgrading e-skills in VET and adult training institutions will foster innovation and change in personnel and organizational management.

Impact

More efficient organizational processes, improved collaboration through web 2.0 tools, and a resulting co-development climate, will allow for greater competitiveness and visibility in the education market.

Duration

SVEA is funded by the European commission within the Lifelong Learning Programme,  and will run from 1 January 2010 until 31 December 2011.
