KA3 ICT Multilateral Project
Project No: 511579-LLP-2010-LT-KA3-KA3MP
Successful participation in the fast-changing labour market requires the alignment of employment-related skills and competences. During the last years mentoring provided by employers and/or employees in their roles as mentors is becoming more and more common phenomenon worldwide and has already proved itself as an effective learning process.
The transnational EU-project e-Mentoring aims to increase the capacities of students in High Education, trainees in Vocational Education and Training institutions, and adults re-/entering the labour market by collecting good practice experiences and transferring best solutions into a common e-Mentoring model.
The e-Mentoring process is enhanced by integrating Open Educational Resources (OERs) for self-directed learning on employability and entrepreneurship into the e-Mentoring model.
ICT-enabled learning solutions (Web 2.0, Moodle, etc.). Enhance productivity of and accessibility
to the e-Mentoring process ensuring its common use within three above mentioned educational sectors.
There are many different ways of mentoring, as well as experiences in this field collected from the project partners' countries, thus, it is important to make the common knowledge of the e-Mentoring process accessible to 3M-Actors (Managers, Mentors, Mentees) prior to starting mentoring itself. Therefore, self-directed e-learning courses for 3M-Actors will be developed within the project and published openly with Web 2.0 tools.
Virtual e-learning environment for registered users will be developed on Moodle to ensure the confidentiality and effectiveness of e-Mentoring process. This innovative educational approach for acquiring new skills and competences for new jobs via e-Mentoring on employment-related issues will be presented in an e-Guidebook.
The project defines the ways of using ICT in mentoring process and enhances learning opportunities for the target groups to get new skills and competences for increasing their employability. The project also shows that mentors from the business surroundings could be involved in e-Mentoring process in order to prepare the qualified employees for their enterprises.
Social networks for managers, mentors and mentees will be created to promote e-Mentoring model worldwide.
The project started in January, 2011 with participation of partners from Lithuania, United Kingdom, Finland, Italy, Bulgaria, Germany and United States. The e-Mentoring project will be finalized in June, 2013.
