The demand for high-quality advanced education courses on the Internet has risen tremendously in recent years. Participants particularly appreciate the time and location flexibility of these E-Learning courses. The positive experience with various E-Learning programs in Germany strengthened the idea of making the findings of JAEL accessible in the form of an online tool. The program focusses particularly on professionals who deal with children, adolescents and young adults in residential socio-educational setting on a daily basis.
The content of the E-Learning Program focuses on sensitizing risk and protective factors in children, adolescents and young adults and, in particular, on dealing with these factors in day-to-day socio-educational practice. The aim of the E-Learning Program is to provide professionals self-confidence in dealing with the different prerequisites that young people have to meet and to transfer the latest findings of research into everyday practice.
The E-Learning Program is currently in development. The first prototype will be tested extensively from January 2021. After revisions, a pilot will take place in the German-speaking part of Switzerland from January 2022. Additional pilots are planned in the French and Italian-speaking parts of Switzerland from April 2023. The final E-Learning Program will then be finalised and is expected to go online early 2024. We are still looking for participants for the test/pilot phases mentioned above. Further information about the E-Learning Program and on participating in one of the test/pilot phases can be found here.
