Enhancing Quality in Online Technical Teacher Education In Sri Lanka
Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) is increasingly given recognition as a very important aspect in the current times of rapid economic, social and technological change. TVET skills fill the gap of lifelong learning needs of the TVET workers to actively participate and contribute to the knowledge economy (UNESCO and ILO, 2002). The challenge is to develop innovative and affordable TVET solutions to achieve the desired outcomes (UNESCO, 2008). // Addressing the professional development requirements of the teachers in technical and vocational education institutions in Sri Lanka, the University of Vocational Technology (UNIVOTEC) offers a National Diploma in Technical Teacher Education (NDTTE) course. The goal of this TVET diploma is to enhance the knowledge, attitudes and skills of the technical lecturers and instructors in relation to the teaching-learning process and improve their life-long learning skills (UNIVOTEC, 2016). // This paper reports a case study on the capacity building process of UNIVOTEC faculty in online course design, development and delivery, focusing on its impact on quality enhancement in technical teacher education. // Paper ID 507
