Digital Tutors


Vocational education, Digital technologies, Social inclusion

Digital Tutors aims to help schools upskill their teachers to well-equipped online tutors.


Although the Covid19 pandemic is a crisis for education institutions worldwide, it forced the whole branch to digitalise education in less than a couple of weeks’ time. Before the pandemic, globalisation and climate change were demanding innovation and digitalisation of (distance) education as well.
How can we bend the crisis into an opportunity to accelerate innovation in teaching-learning digitally?
Together with Friese Poort and several European education partners, Learning Hub Friesland want to learn how VET-schools in Europe have handled teaching during the Covid19 pandemic and how we can improve the skills of Vocational Education teachers and trainers to meet the future needs of (distance) education.

To be specific, we want to:
- improve the teaching-learning process of on-line and blended training courses
- upskill on-line teachers and trainers as “digital tutor”.
- create a resource repository to support digital tutors in their daily work.
