Beyond Zoom

Contribute to digital transformation of VET educators

Om projektet

The aim of the Beyond Zoom project is to contribute to digital transformation through the development of digital readiness, resilience and capacity by enhancing the competencies and capacities of VET educators to deliver quality, inclusive training opportunities in online and hybrid (online, offline and combination of both) teaching and learning environments.


The COVID- 19 pandemic has caused vast changes in all of our lives and has highlighted existing vulnerabilities and inequalities in all spheres of society – from health through to education. In this context, we have seen that the urgency to enhance digital skills and competencies for digital transformation in all sectors has never been greater – the vocational, education and training sector is no different. These changes concern at least 3 thematic areas of the DigCompEdu framework – Digital Resources, Empowering learners (especially ensuring accessibility and inclusion) and Facilitating Learner’s Digital Competence that are crucial to provide uninterrupted learning process.

With an abrupt change to ’remote’ and ’online’ training that COVID-19 brought, we have seen first-hand how (despite pockets of innovation and good practice), the VET sector struggled to adapt to this new teaching and learning environment that is dominated by digital technologies.

To reach the project’s aim, BEYZO has the following objectives:

  • increase the knowledge of existing best practices in online and hybrid VET delivery and synthesise results for wider dissemination
  • support VET educators in delivering training and educational activities in online and hybrid environments
  • increase the availability of educational resources supporting VET educators to adapt offline training into online and hybrid settings
  • improve the skills and expertise of VET educators across a range of sectors in facilitating inclusive quality learning processes in both online and hybrid spaces
  • support the policymakers in understanding the needs for national and panEuropean accreditation for digital facilitation skills training and contribute to the definition of micro-credentials
