E-learning Competencies for Teachers in Secondary and Higher Education

Sebastiaan Jans, Valère Awouters

Abstract


Teaching and learning with ICT requires specific competencies for teachers and lectures. Too much attention was given to the technological aspects. Teachers learned to work with hard- and software. A typical example is the European Computer Driving License (ECDL). A lot of people attend courses on text processing, spreadsheets, but using a Virtual Learning Environment like e.g. Blackboard or Moodle demands more didactical than technical skills. Especially e-learning and blended learning is too demanding to let teachers learn to use these tools only by experimenting. More and more is generally accepted that the e-learning competencies for teachers require a longer course. Which competences and how these can be realized is the main focus of this paper? Besides the theoretical background, two examples will be showed.

Keywords


digital didactics, e-learning competencies, European Computer Driving License, Information and Communication Technology (ICT), postgraduate e-learning.
