The “Digital Facilitator”: An Extended Profile to Manage the Digital Transformation of Swiss Vocational Schools

Cattaneo, Alberto A. P. ; Bonini, Luca ; Rauseo, Martina

In: Digital Transformation of Learning Organizations, 2021, p. 169-187

Digital transformation requires the field of education to increasingly deal with the interplay between the teachers’ individual development of digital competence and institutional integration and adoption of digital technology. This is especially crucial in the vocational education context, which is closer to the world of work and, therefore, more sensitive to the disruptive changes of...

Perceived educational usefulness of a virtual-reality work situation depends on the spatial human-environment relation

Dobricki, Martin ; Kim, Kevin G. ; Coppi, Alessia E. ; Dillenbourg, Pierre ; Cattaneo, Alberto

In: Research in Learning Technology, 2021, vol. 29, p. 1-11

Virtual reality (VR) may be useful for situating school-based vocational education in work-life by simulating a work situation such that learners viewing this VR work situation are located inside it. The reason for this assumption is that VR can fully spatially include its viewer. Research on the utility of viewer-including VR work situations for learners has, therefore, already started....

“I Reflect, Therefore I Am… a Good Professional”. On the Relationship between Reflection-on-Action, Reflection-in-Action and Professional Performance in Vocational Education

Cattaneo, Alberto ; Motta, Elisa

In: Vocations and Learning, 2020, p. 1-20

Reflection is essential for professional competence development in every profession. Reflection-on-action (taking place a posteriori, when the task is already accomplished) and reflection-in-action (occurring while performing the task) are equally important to increasing one’s professionalism. Some evidence supports the effectiveness of promoting the former by using metacognitive prompts that...

Online vs. offline course evaluation revisited : testing the invariance of a course evaluation questionnaire using a multigroup confirmatory factor analysis framework

Laupper, Ellen ; Balzer, Lars ; Berger, Jean-Louis

In: Educational Assessment, Evaluation and Accountability, 2020, vol. 32, p. 481–498

Survey-based formats of assessing teaching quality in higher education are widely used and will likely continue to be used by higher education institutions around the world as various global trends contributing to their widespread use further evolve. Although the use of mobile devices for course evaluation continues to grow, there remain some unresolved aspects of the classic paper and...

Things versus People: Gender Differences in Vocational Interests and in Occupational Preferences

Kuhn, Andreas ; Wolter, Stefan C.

Occupational choices remain strongly segregated by gender, for reasons not yet fully understood. In this paper, we use detailed information on the cognitive requirements in 130 distinct learnable occupations in the Swiss apprenticeship system to describe the broad job content in these occupations along the things-versus-people dimension. We first show that our occupational classification along...

Innovative learning cultures in VET – ‘I generate my own projects.’

Barabasch, Antje ; Keller, Anna

In: Journal of Vocational Education and Training, 2020, vol. 72, no. 4, p. 536-554

The learning of apprentices is always embedded within the overall learning culture of an enterprise. The structures for learning, as well as the attitudes, values and beliefs of the members of the organisation in respect to training, influence the ways in which apprentices are socialised and prepared for the labour market. This qualitative case study focuses on the experience of apprentices...

Boundaries against immigrants and their subjectively felt discrimination

Duemmler, Kerstin

(FORS Working Paper series ; 2013-6)

The paper studies the feeling of being discriminated among immigrants and their children in Europe as a multifaceted phenomenon. Their discrimination is brought in relation to (1) negative attitudes towards immigrants within the general public (symbolic boundaries) and (2) societal macro structures that enhance or prohibit the access for immigrants to socioeconomic privileges, scarce resources...

The Influence of Qualification on Women's Childlessness in West Germany : Age and Cohort Effects = Der Einfluss von Qualifikation auf Kinderlosigkeit bei Frauen in Westdeutschland: Alters- und Kohorteneffekte ; Analysen mit dem deutschen Mikrozensus

Wirth, Heike ; Duemmler, Kerstin

In: Zeitschrift für Bevölkerungswissenschaft, 2005, vol. 30, no. 2-3, p. 313-336

Even though there is a growing concern about a socially selective pattern of childlessness among women and the implications for policy and the economy in Germany, there have been no comprehensive studies to analyse the extent of childlessness. This can be put down to the fact that the available data to study this issue are rather insufficient. Using official microdata, the aim of the present...
