To support the implementation of digital fabrication laboratories (Fab-labs) in the 26 Technological Institutes of Excellence (IDEX) of Peru to ensure that trainees develop the skills to lead innovation while facilitating and managing changes within the institutions.
The B.08.2 “Supporting the Pilot Implementation of a National Network of Digital fabrication laboratories (Fab-lab)-Peru (MINEDU)” project was a 14-month (2022-2023) initiative supported by Global Affairs Canada (GAC), managed by Colleges and Institutes Canada (CICan) in the framework of its Pacific Alliance Education for Employment Program. Humber College led the project with supporting institutions, Cègep Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu (CSTJ) and Collège communautaire du Nouveau-Brunswick (CCNB), and implementation partner, the Ministry of Education of Peru (MINEDU) to contribute to the objectives prioritized in Vice Ministerial Resolution No. 211-2021-Minedu: “I learn at home, I learn at school, and I learn in the community.” With support from Humber’s Office of Research and Innovation, the consortium implemented Digital Fabrication Laboratories (Fab-labs) in the 26 Technological Institutes of Excellence (IDEX) of Peru to ensure that the trainees develop the skillset they need for launching and strengthening the Fab-labs in 26 IDEX in Peru. Project partners will provide well-structured, high-quality services adequately meet the needs of teachers, students and graduates. Together, the Canadian-Peruvian team will develop developed training plans and strategies that supported the integration of these technological tools (Fab-labs) in technical training courses and institute curricula fostering gender inclusion and equality and innovation through digital manufacturing technology.
To assist the General Directorate of Technical-Productive and Superior Technological and Artistic Education DIGESUTPA in implementing a national online learning platform with a learning managing system (LMS) for various education institutions.
The B.08.01 Project “Supporting DIGESUTPA (MINEDU) in the implementation of an online platform that includes training by competencies” was a 14-month (2022-2023) initiative supported by Global Affairs Canada (GAC), managed by Colleges and Institutes Canada (CICan) in the framework of its Pacific Alliance Education for Employment Program. Fanshawe College led the project with supporting institution Humber College and implementation partner, the Ministry of Education of Peru (MINEDU), to support the implementation of a nationwide online learning management system (LMS) at various levels of educational institutions to improve the quality of life of men and women through the training of qualified labour to meet the needs of the extractive sector (SE) in Peru.
Within the framework of this project, a new proposal to design and structure curricula to strengthen its online learning processes in the short, medium and long term. The curricula were structured around two training programs: an online teaching training program from a competency-based learning perspective and a change management training program.
