Qualifying for the ultimate engaging smart training

COVID19 imposed emergent remote teaching and learning at a global scale. This mass and unprecedented use of technology for learning led teachers, trainers, learners and families facing a steep learning curve, thus exposing the weaknesses in need of improvement in order to successfully integrate digital technologies into education and training

Systems. QUEST partners identified the need for the new European Instructional Design’ Professional Profile. Instructional designers are the ‘architects’ of the learning experience and the ‘directors’ of the Instructional Systems Design ISD process  (Instructional Design Central).

Project Objectives:

  1. Contribute to the harmonization, at European level, of the skills of the Instructional Designer profession
  2. Facilitate the mobility of Instructional Designers at European level
  3. Increase the capacity to develop attractive eLearning at European level
  4. Qualify professionals with previously acquired knowledge and skills in Instructional Design
