Digital Online Verification of Skills: Multimedia Journalism ECVET Principles Inclusion
Date du début: 1 sept. 2015, Date de fin: 31 août 2018 PROJET  TERMINÉ 

This project focuses on establishing a common ground for VET institutions to meet the needs of the media industry and elaborating on the skills necessary for the graduates of institutions to be competitive and useful on the field of journalism, finding the ways of incorporating the skill training into already existing curriculum of participating educational institutions - both methodology and structure-wise, verifying and optimising the designed skillsets in practice with the participation of both academic and media institutions and developing ways of including the above mentioned skillsets into the digital systems of the institutions using open source software so that it could be easily modified by third party users to fit anyone’s needs. Since ECVET is designed to address the skills rather than academic progress, it is only natural for ECVET to become the cornerstone around which the project is built. The above mentioned brief structure of the project reflects the logical quality assurance circle (as described by EQAVET) of planning, evaluation, implementation and review. In the project these are represented by developing the methodology of implementing the ECVET principles into LMS and portfolio systems, designing a working plugin and building the skillset background for learning unit creation (planning). Partners take turns in managing various work packages according to their proficiency with other partners providing the background check and quality control (evaluation). During media weeks the learning unit compatibility and ability to deliver the desired outcomes will be put into practice and tested (implementation and further evaluation) and subsequently assessed and reviewed. The combination of LMS (Moodle, Mahara) and media weeks provides all stakeholders with several possibilities. The media representatives may further comment on the implementation of the skillsets, they had previously been asked to help set, by providing the publishing as well as gatekeeping opportunities. The students will have a first-hand experience in co-operating closely with media and their peers from other countries overcoming cultural, language and social differences as well as providing a learning unit verification in the process. The educational institution representatives will be able to implement, evaluate, review and possibly optimise the learning unit design and coherence. The combined live and virtual mobility of the media weeks will allow the real-life simulation to be complete in terms of the media production process (pre-production, production, post-production), selected skillset definition, use and evaluation and plugin data transfer, processing and output customization. While a running LMS (such as Moodle) is a common feature in professional training institutions today, the student support on the field of portfolio creation is less frequent. By combining Moodle as a learning environment, Mahara as a display tool and OpenBadges as way of a certified verification the project aims at further developing the students ICT and presentation skills, increasing their competitiveness and allowing for better chances of succeeding at the national and regional business communities and job agencies
