The disruptive potential of digitalisation: the current Swiss VET landscape


Gonon, Philipp; Kessler, Stefan (2019). The disruptive potential of digitalisation: the current Swiss VET landscape. In: Marhuenda-Fluixá, Fernando; Chisvert-Tarazona, María José.

Abstract

Digitalisation is regarded to have an extensive impact on the world of work, and hence affects vocational education and training (VET). This paper seeks to discuss the disruptive potential of digitalisation in the current Swiss VET context. Two perspectives are provided: First, topical concerns regarding the performance of the concept of VET are discussed. Second, the paper argues that the disruptive potential of digitalisation can be studied at the level of educational practice, asking how VET providers react upon digitalisation by innovating their training practices. Three examples are presented that show differing takes on digitalisation. Finally, the paper closes with a discussion of the two perspectives.
