E-PATHS

OPTIMIZING PROFESSIONAL COMPETENCES THROUGH CLIL-CONTINUA, NOVEL INSTITUTIONAL INTERPLAY AND PERSONALIZED E-SIMULATION SOLUTIONS  – CASE EXAMPLE: MECHATRONICS in EAST-CENTRAL and SOUTHEAST EUROPE

SUMMARY

E-PATHS

EUROPEAN PATHWAYS FOR IMMERSIVE LEARNING IN EDUCATION AND PROFESSION

E-PATHS will deliver a research-based and empirically verified model structure for optimizing professional skills development through content and language integrated learning (CLIL) continua, a novel institutional interplay, as well as personalized, so far unique e-solutions for immersive learning and performance diagnostics. Focusing on the case example of mechatronics in the model region of East-Central and Southeast-Europe, foundations will be laid for a gradual adaptation, regional transfer and accompanying further quality development of the model structures in and for diverse educational landscapes throughout Europe.

Particularly characteristic of the E-PATHS work programme is an innovative interplay in and between various institutional structures and the work phases in the three main innovation areas identified and defined for the project through a preparatory state-of-the-art analysis: (1) the conception, trial-implementation and evaluation of vocational CLIL-continua, (2) the demand-based intra- and inter-sectoral dovetailing of educational institutions and enterprises, as well as (3) the case-specific modelling and trial-implementation of immersive film-based computer simulations as to illustrate up-to-date educational innovations for individual support and accompanying formative diagnostics in the acquisition of professional competences.

The model structures to be designed through E-PATHS will pave way for fostering professional competences in diverse target groups and regions far beyond the ones addressed at this stage: The case examples for the practical implementation of vocational CLIL-continua, the novel demand-oriented bridge-building between educational institutions and enterprises, as well as the exemplary modelling and implementation of immersive e-simulation solutions for learning support and performance diagnostics will be serving not only as illustration of the “E-PATHS-innovations” as such, but far more as a foundation for their systematic adaptation, regional transfer and context-specific further development – thus contributing to a longer-term fostering of the global competitiveness of the European educational and professional practices in more general terms.
