Leonardo da Vinci Project BLENDED LEARNING TRANSFER Rationalising, Learning and Transferring the use of technological platforms to enterprise-based learning strategies GOVERNANCE OF THE PROJECT: monitoring, evaluation and valorisation systems. Confindustria Veneto SIAV Spa Mestre Venice 26.02.2008
Blended Learning Transfer GOVERNANCE of the Project Monitoring Evaluation Valorisation (dissemination + exploitation + sustainability) 3 Activities
Blended Learning Transfer GOVERNANCE of the Project To tackle the issue of developing knowledge management culture within enterprises by empowering their capability to adopt blended approaches to learning. Link to project objectives Enterprises (especially SME’s) VET system (training agencies, professionals,…) Institutions responsible for Lifelong Learning policies
Blended Learning Transfer GOVERNANCE of the Project Systematical activity aiming to describe and re-construct the project implementation, through the metodical retrieval of data and information Difference between monitoring and evaluation Innovative characteristics of the experience Success factors or Threats Support to project management for the decision making process Monitoring
Blended Learning Transfer GOVERNANCE of the Project It is about judgement and decision making. Evaluation shows if project objectives have been met, if planned results have been realised, if envisaged impact has been produced Difference between monitoring and evaluation Value added from innovation transfer Changes to original planning. Quality assessment. Report to EU Commission and LLP key actors. Evaluation
Blended Learning Transfer GOVERNANCE of the Project Terms of reference These activities are carried out within the quality assurance approach of the project. They provide data and info for the evaluation actions that may be established at national and community level. M & E are carried out internally. Monitoring and Evaluation Quality analysis of partnership work Efficiency analysis of actions carried out Added value analysis of transfer of innovation
Blended Learning Transfer GOVERNANCE of the Project Monitoring & Evaluation It deals with methodological effectiveness, operative efficiency, organisational sustainability. Proposed indicators are: Quality Assurance Pertinence and relevance; Result; Organisational; Innovation; Valorisation; Awareness; Transfer.
Blended Learning Transfer GOVERNANCE of the Project Monitoring & Evaluation Outputs foreseen Report on activity progress (frequency to be decided) Final evaluation report (at the end of the project)
Blended Learning Transfer GOVERNANCE of the Project Monitoring & Evaluation Tools for M & E activities An “information collecting fiche” to be periodically filled by each partner using the collaboration platform. Briefs to be reported at any meeting of the Steering Committee
Blended Learning Transfer Work Package 2 – Quality Role and tasks of Partners involved: SIAV in collaboration with all Partners Aims: a. Defining the procedures b. Defining the documentation c. Administrative management d. Archive management e. Monitoring and Evaluation f. Quality Control
VALORISATION ACTIVITIES Blended Learning Transfer What we mean by valorisation (a definition from the EU Commission) "Valorisation" can be described as a process of exploiting project learning and outcomes (training products and processes, methodology, course materials etc) with a view to optimising their value and impact in existing and new contexts (target groups, companies, sectors, training institutions and systems etc). To be effective, the process requires: a focus on end user/target group needs from project inception; dissemination of innovative training products and results; selection and analysis of their suitability for transfer to meet identified new needs; translation and adaptation to targeted new contexts; piloting and experimentation; leading to full integration into the new context.
VALORISATION ACTIVITIES Blended Learning Transfer Objectives of our valorisation strategy To support, guide and stimulate the transfer of the approach to knowledge management and its integration in blended methodologies available for companies, training agencies, continuous learning professionals. To activate mainstreaming and exploitation processes in the Italian and in the partners’ contexts.
VALORISATION ACTIVITIES Blended Learning Transfer 3 Stages of the valorisation strategy Elaboration of strategy; Realisation of the valorisation plan; Evaluation of strategy.
VALORISATION ACTIVITIES Blended Learning Transfer Elaboration of strategy Design and articulation of valorisation plan; Creation of a valorisation task force; Identification of target groups; Definition of a calendar.
VALORISATION ACTIVITIES Blended Learning Transfer Realisation of the valorisation plan Design and realisation of three valorisation activities to be performed along with the three logical steps of the project (rationalisation; learning; transfer); Analysis of the transferability of rationalised experiences to target groups and territories; Design and realisation of activities aiming to innovation transfer.
VALORISATION ACTIVITIES Blended Learning Transfer Evaluation of the valorisation plan As a part of the overall evaluation activity, the valorisation plan will be seized as for its efficacy, impact and relevance of results.
VALORISATION ACTIVITIES Blended Learning Transfer Target groups and potential users Agencies and bodies for continuous vocational training; Policy makers at local level; Enterprises. Entrepreneurs, managers, workers; Human resource developers; Professionals and consultants. Anyone else ? From the application form
Aims: A. Strategy elaboration B. Plan implementation C. Strategy evaluation Work Package 6 - Sustainability and Dissemination Blended Learning Transfer Role and tasks of Partners involved: SIAV: activity A in collaboration with all Partners EUROFORTIS: activities B and C in collaboration with all Partners Valorisation
