Hello. Good to see that you found the way to the online course of the Erasmus project Bleft.
My name is Barbara and I work for Catholic Education Flanders.
Together with my colleague Wouter I will be your guide in how to develop online content for blended learning in forestry trainings. We are very happy to share our expertise in this matter with you. My expertise is all about e-learning, internet educational tools, techniques and e-troubleshooting.
My name is Wouter and I also work for Catholic Education Flanders. We support schools in how to develop educational innovational processes. My field of expertise is thinking about language and cognitive structures behind learning. I try to optimize processes in design and instruction for online learning.
Of course, you have a clear idea about what the project is about! But… just to remember: BLEFT stands for Blended European Forestry Training. Your organization will create online learning modules for forestry professionals together with 6 other partners. With this innovative learning method, BLEFT wants to reach as large a group of professionals as possible, with the most up-to-date knowledge on specific forestry subjects. As the internet is often not the comfort zone of our target audience, there are important challenges here. Not only in detecting the needs of the forestry sector. But also in training the experts who will transfer and adapt their knowledge into online content.
In this course we will explain the journey you will make in order to create online content for blended learning. This journey is built in 4 steps: The discovery step; the design step, the develop stage and finally the evaluation step . We will also focus on some methodological principles.
Remember: you are not alone to make this journey. We, from Catholic Education Flanders, will help you with all your questions, because we are one of the project partners in this Eramus project. So do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions and … don’t forget to enjoy the journey!
