Deploy a tool to determine digital training needs in educational institutions in Quebec

The Institut national des mines du Québec filed this week an opinion to the ministers of education and higher education in which it recommends the deployment of a tool in the curriculum review process, as well as in voluntary educational institutions.

The objectives of the deployment of this tool would be to:  

  • Enable educational establishments to better determine the digital training needs of the different categories of staff;
  • Provide education sector staff with training adapted to the development and enhancement of their digital skills.

This opinion was produced after the development and validation of a digital 4.0 diagnostic tool on training programs in the mining sector. We told you about it this week on the École branchée website.
