Stay up to date with the latest developments and milestones of eWBL (Work-based learning) project.
The eWBL (work-based learning) co-creation session was hosted in Ljubljana
Researchers from the University of Groningen and the University of Ljubljana met for a co-creation session to discuss the draft guideline for trainers in HE and in industry for implementing high-quality eWBL. The meeting was hosted by University of Ljubljana. The results of the discussion has indicated that while there are some disadvantages and challenges of implementing WBL remotely, there are also several solutions available that could offset some of the challenges. The leaders of the work package leaders stated that “with the support of the framework that they are developing, they aim to highlights not only the advantages of eWBL (flexibility, lower costs, digital competencies) but also the ways in which the disadvantages can be minimized”.
The framework divides eWBL in five stages: design, preparation, onboarding, delivery, and assessment. Each stage is filled out with several theoretical and practical recommendations from literature and data collected in work package 1. The framework will be soon available for download in the project website.
As remote work is becoming more popular, there is an increasing need for a robust pedagogical and technological model for “eWBL” that meets all the criteria for qualitative implementation and the delivery of the eWBL. It is within this context that eWBL project is conceived and implemented. The project aims to generate knowledge and provide guidance on how to deliver high quality eWBL from both a pedagogical and technological perspective.
eWBL framework development is the second work package of the eWBL project. It builds on the first work package which produced 27 case studies of eWBL implementation across different parts of Europe. The partners are continuing their work to establish general framework and replicable models for delivering high-quality eWBL that will be useful to a broader audience.
About eWBL project
eWBL (Work Based Learning) is an Erasmus+ project coordinated by the Science to Business Marketing Research Center of FH Münster University of Applied Sciences. The project brings together 6 partners across the EU: University of Groningen (Netherlands), Fondazione Giacomo Brodolini S.r.l. SB (FGB) (Italy), Ca’Foscari University of Venice (Italy), Momentum (Ireland), and Ljubljana University (Slovenia).
The project focuses on how work-based learning competences could be fostered in the absence of a physical environment. As the work environment is increasingly shifting to online and hybrid formats, ways of making work-based learning effective in this new environment has become an urgent need of educators across the EU. The project addresses this specific need by developing frameworks, tools, and guidelines that educators in HE (lecturers, trainers, and administrative staff) could use to deliver high-quality eWBL.
