DIMA 2.0 Newsletter 3

In the summer, we were proud with the launch of the IO3. E-learning Platform & OERs, an e-learning space with a training course for adult educators and adult education providers. This new deliverable adds to the training material we had already developed; the e-learning space features a fully selfpaced e-learning course for adult education providers and educators, with online training modules that focus on strategies that will cover the needs of low-skilled adults.

Find out more about the project’s progress in the third newsletter of DIMA 2.0.

COVID-19 Digital Response

The Covid-19 pandemic disrupted the normal processes of almost any industry, globally and at a European level. Without exception, the educational organisations are now asked to be prepared to manage all types of disruptions that may occur while adapting to various scenarios that will emerge in the post-pandemic era. These cases include imposed lockdowns, mixed-presence teaching (having simultaneously face-to-face students and others joining remotely), participants’ (long-term) absence due to illness or quarantine purposes.

Following this need, a consortium of six partners from six EU countries, came together to implement the COVID-19 Digital Response project. The aim is to build the capacities of VET organisations in offering online, distance, and blended learning programmes, during both normal and emergency situations.

Thus, all those involved, such as VET providers, teachers, and students, will be able to create, deliver, and participate in educational experiences that have a business and learning continuity.

Cycling Trends in Education, Training & Diagnosis

Recent research studies have proven and confirmed the benefits of cycling on physical and mental health, and without a doubt, including cycling in our everyday lives can meet the recommended physical activity guidelines. If done correctly and effectively, cycling can offer its benefits to a higher degree.

The aim of the project is to stimulate an active and healthy life for young EU citizens, boost volunteering, and bring in the added value of cultural heritage through cycling. Specifically, this will be done through an e-learning platform containing digital tools to provide information about the different categories of cycling. An e-manual on the methodological guidelines for cycling trainers and coaches will also be made available to the public.

In addition, a software for trainers and professional cyclists will be designed and developed to test the performance of the cyclists. The C-TREND project aims to offer all the relevant information to people of all ages to achieve their highest individual performance in cycling.
