between EU sponsored VET/HRD research and policies in Belgium are demonstrated
by the following projects:
European e-competence initiative “EU eCOMPInt” is an e-learning project
for teachers at university level, which is supported by the European Commission.
Via a broad study this project will give an overview of the existing e-Competence
training. It will make an analysis of needs within higher education. It
will develop examples of blended learning and create scenarios which combine
face-to-face and online modules on a coherent manner for such training.
In practice this research project will consist of the following broad activities:
to make a field study of the existing all European e-Competence programmes
in the higher education; to make a policy oriented analysis of the integration
of e-Competence programmes towards the institutional innovation strategies;
to develop a European service platform for e-Competence consultation and
support and to disseminate and apply research results and of this European
service for staff development.
second EU sponsored VET/HRD research project is called ESIST: Improvement
Of Training For School Executive Boards : A European Perspective. This
project, supported in the framework of the Comenius programme, aims to
improve the training for school executive boards.
third European project “Girls And Data Processing” is intended to promote
the intake of the number of female data processing students and to improve
the future perspectives of training for this target group.
