SELFIE WBL Pilot Country Report: Turkey
Yildirim, Soner
European Training Foundation
The SELFIE WBL pilot project started in Turkey in July 2020. SELFIE WBL is a new SELFIE module for VET schools that involves in-company trainers. It provides a self-reflection tool for VET schools to improve their digital capacity. Aggregate data obtained from the tool can also be used to inform the Ministry of National Education's (MoNE's) digital education policy. The pilot study, which was completed in November 2020, drew on the involvement of 23 schools and 28 companies involving 7 301 students, 1 089 teachers, 170 school leaders and 87 in-company trainers. The quantitative results revealed that users (i.e. school leaders, in-company trainers, teachers and students) had a high level of satisfaction with SELFIE WBL. In Turkey, in-company trainers and school leaders were found to have a higher level of satisfaction with SELFIE WBL than other user groups. In addition, the results showed that users of SELFIE WBL were quite likely to recommend its use to others. School leaders were found to be more likely to recommend SELFIE WBL than other user groups. Overall, the highest mean rating on the SELFIE WBL questionnaire came in the area of 'Pedagogy: Supports and Resources', while the lowest mean rating came in the area of 'Infrastructure and Equipment'. The qualitative findings are also promising. All participants stated that SELFIE WBL made it possible for schools to identify their strengths and weaknesses in different SELFIE areas from the perspectives of different user groups. As the SELFIE WBL reports show, schools have started to prepare their action plans with the involvement of companies in order to address weaknesses in the use of educational technologies. The qualitative findings also show that in-company trainers highlight the potential of SELFIE WBL for self-reflection. [This report was written with Alessandro Brolpito and Ralph Hippe.
