A change in focus ⇒ Vocational Education and Training
As mentioned in my last blog post – years ago – I’ve been working at the Metropolitan University College since the summer of 2013. Since then, I’ve blogged in Danish only, but I’ve missed this blog and so I have decided to make a change in focus. However, it doesn’t mean that I’ve lost interest in Second Life (SL) or virtual worlds in general – they are still my favourite virtual learning environments .. by far! :-) I will continue to blog about SL occasionally, but for the past three years, I’ve been working, researching, and teaching with other technologies and media, so it makes sense to broaden my focus here.
Also my research focus has changed, meaning that I’m currently leader of a research project (2015-2017) that studies in-service vocational teachers’ use of ICT as boundary objects as a means to facilitate better connection and continuity in and between school and apprenticeship periods in the Danish dual vocational system.
So in summing up, this is just a brief post to let my readers know that change is about to happen, and I’m looking forward to sharing my thoughts, ideas, and research regarding vocational education and training (VET) combined with the use of different types of ICT in future posts.
