QUESTIONNAIRE FOR AGRICULTURAL VET TEACHERS

Preface

Dear Teacher!

We would like to ask for your help and assistance in our project aimed at preparing agricultural vocational education teachers to teach topics in e-agriculture.
The aim of the AGRITEACH 4.0 project is to help vocational agricultural teachers to renew and revise their current teaching methods by providing free and open online distance education courses in e-agriculture.

Our questionnaire is intended to assess:

  • your current Agro-informatics competence levels
  • your knowledge of e-agriculture and related technologies
  • the extent to VET schools are currently teach e-agriculture and related technologies, European Strategies and initiatives of e-Agriculture, and apply innovative teaching methods
  • your expectations for this online course

In order for agricultural teachers to successfully complete the online course, and gain a certificate from our project, they will need to demonstrate an understanding not only of agriculture, but also of the latest agrarian informatics tools, the latest technologies and agricultural trends.

We believe that educated teachers with well-founded agronomic competencies will go on to train professionals able to manage your business’s agricultural information technology and tools, and engage with the experts and businesses that devise the strategies for the effective functioning of your farms.

The questionnaire is both voluntary and anonymous.  It takes approximately 15 minutes to complete.  You can find out more about the project, and fill out the questionnaire, at: https://www.utipa.info/survey 
The results of the survey, and the background to AGRITEACH 4.0, will be published on the project at www.agriteach.com

Thank you for your contribution!
