Teaching and learning methods in initial vocational education and training: European trends and challenges (2013-2014)


This study investigated the extent to which different normative or descriptive theories of teaching and learning impact upon practice in different countries, as well as the contribution of other factors such as curricula, teacher training, organisational and national cultures. A key part of this research was to develop and test concepts and methods that permit robust judgements about similarities and differences between teaching and learning practices in IVET across Europe and their impacts. The study was carried out during 2013 and the final report was submitted in January 2014.

The project was funded by Cedefop.
