Vocational Pedagogy: what it is, why it matters and how to put it into practice

Report of the UNESCO-UNEVOC online conference, 12-26 May 2014

To further our understanding of vocational pedagogy, UNESCO-UNEVOC organized a virtual conference from 12 to 26 May 2014 on the UNEVOC e-Forum. Moderated by Professor Bill Lucas, Director of the Centre for Real-World Learning, Professor of Learning at the University of Winchester (United Kingdom) and co-creator of the Expansive Education Network, this virtual conference explored what vocational pedagogy is, why it matters and how teachers can put it into practice.

The two-week virtual conference attracted 197 participants from 65 different countries, representing policy makers, researchers, practitioners and most importantly, teachers and students. They came together to deepen their understanding of vocational pedagogy and comprehend its complexity. The contributions and experiences shared illustrated the importance of vocational pedagogy in improving learner outcomes in TVET, as well its role as a catalyst for raising the status and quality of TVET.
