What impact will AI have on occupations & What does that mean for Vocational Education and Training? Questions we are discussing together.

About this Event

AI is particularly important for vocational education and training (VET) as it promises profound changes in employment and work tasks. Not only are some jobs vulnerable and new jobs likely to be created but there will be changing tasks and roles within jobs, requiring changes in initial and continuing training, for those in work as well as those seeking employment. This will require changes in existing VET content, new programmes such as the design of AI systems in different sectors, and adaptation to new ways of cooperative work with AI.

For VET teachers and trainers there are many possible uses of AI including new opportunities for adapting learning content based on student’s needs, new processes for assessment, analysing possible bottlenecks in learners’ domain understanding and improvement in guidance for learners

The workshop will explore these issues with short inputs based on the findings of an ongoing Erasmus Plus project on AI and VET, and breakout sessions for discussion by particpants around key issues.

Partners from five european countries will welcome you!
