Expression of Interest for the Training of Trainers Distance Learning Developers / ProVte project

Context

Considering the current COVID-19 pandemic and the stumbling economic situation that are affecting Lebanon at several levels, all schools closed on the 2nd of March 2020 and could be even stay closed during the academic year 2020/21.

Against this background the EU-funded ProVTE Project, implemented by GIZ, intends to ensure that all students of the BT “Bâtiment et Travaux Publics“ whose learning has been interrupted, will receive the chance to stay engaged in learning and are receiving the necessary support to cope with the isolation and the new distance learning (DL) approach that has been imposed on them.

Up to now technical teachers are used to deliver the content of the Technical theoretical subjects (about 150 hours per semester per year) in classroom settings following an existing curriculum for the BT “Bâtiment et Travaux Publics“. In order to address the need for competent technical teachers, that are able to develop and facilitate technical theory subject classes in distance learning modality, ProVTE is looking for 20 competent and motivated TVET teachers to develop the same technical and theoretical subjects in DL modality. To assure the uniformity of the courses developed in DL, a platform for the development of the courses has been chosen to be systematically applied to all BT programs eventually.

 

Objectives

To assure a consistent level of quality of the content and the flow of the DL courses, a standard process for the development of the DL lessons has been defined. The teachers will get familiarized with this process and enabled to develop their own DL lessons in the frame of a 40h training of trainers (ToT), which is not remunerated, but free of charge and mandatory for the applicants.

The ToT courses will be conducted in a week between mid-August and mid-September 2020. The course will be done in distance learning modality (online). After the completion of the course, the teachers will be assigned to develop 1 DL lesson (50min) related to the technical theoretical courses listed below. His/her performance will be assessed and the most qualified teachers will subsequently have the possibility to be contracted by ProVTE to develop different technical theoretical courses (up to 30h of lessons per teacher) of the BT in “Bâtiment et Travaux Publics“ in DL modality, such as:

  • Building Materials and methods
  • Painting
  • Paving
  • Resistance of Materials
  • Sanitary equipment
  • Air conditioning equipment
  • Topography
  • Construction technique in large works
  • Public works
