Workshop Outlines

Pedagogy for Vocational and Professional Education and Training (VPET)

Effective and appropriate pedagogies are important in facilitating learning in vocational and professional education and training (VPET). In this workshop, suitable VPET pedagogical practices such as differentiated instructions, work-integrated learning and technology enhanced learning (TEL) will be introduced. Specific instructional strategies in the context of VPET will also be discussed in the workshop.

Upon completion of this workshop, participants would be able to:

  • reflect on specific learning and teaching strategies for teaching vocational courses; and
  • select suitable pedagogical practices for facilitating learners to acquire knowledge, trade-specific and transferrable skills.


Designing Flexible and Blended Learning with Technologies

This workshop aims to promote the design of flexible and blended learning with up-to-date technologies specifically for vocational and professional education and training (VPET). Massive open online course (MOOC), augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), in-class clickers and mobile learning applications will be introduced. Demonstration and hands-on practice on the technologies will be provided, to help participants design flexible and blended learning and teaching activities.

Upon completion of this workshop, the participants would be able to:

  • identify good practices of flexible learning using technologies; and
  • choose appropriate technologies in supporting flexible and blended learning.


Effective Mentoring Skills in Workplace for VPET

This workshop prepares vocational and professional education and training (VPET) teachers and workplace mentors with effective mentoring techniques to help students learn better in workplaces. Participants will explore the characteristics of the young mentees; and discuss the skills of communication, goal setting, and giving constructive feedback. The workshop also serves as a platform for participants to share their expertise and experience as mentors in workplaces.

Upon completion of this workshop, the participants would be able to:

  • familarise with the characteristics of young mentees; and
  • develop effective mentoring skills to help students learn more effectively in workplaces.
