Practical teaching and learning

The Project

The Practical Learning at Remote in the Transport Sector (PraLe) project will test new practical teaching and learning methods in the transport profession. Testing harnesses the potential of digital technology in an innovative way that enables learning via remote and network connections.

Project objectives

The main goal of the PraLe project is to develop new education in the transport sector by integrating methods in which students practice practical work independently using ICT solutions and remote and network connections. In the PraLe project, we want to gather and utilize the best experiences in teaching distance learning and practical skills. Secondly, we want to create a cost-effective, training-enhancing and environmentally friendly training implementation model that allows practical skills to be practiced independently and remotely.

Results

1.

The first result is a comprehensive survey-based study of the level of distance and online implementation of truck and bus driver training, as well as core competency training and all that is still missing (and why) about distance and online learning.

The fourth result is a handbook for the independent learning of the main tasks of a truck and bus driver as a distance and online implementation, as well as recommendations for vocational schools in the transport sector to digitize education in this field.

2.

The second result is the Road Map “script” for some of the most important hands-on skills and job responsibilities for truck and bus drivers. It presents a plan for how these skills can be learned independently using remote connections. In addition, RoadMap takes into account the assessment of learning and acquired competencies.

3.

The third result is to ensure the effectiveness of remote and network implementation in the implementation of practical training, acquisition of competence and development. The result of testing can change attitudes towards distance and online learning and contribute to the adoption of new technologies.
