The second session in the WorldSkills Conference Talks will focus on the online delivery of skills competitions, training, and assessments. It will ask what can be achieved in a virtual format and what is most challenging to translate from in-person environments. We will examine the practical approaches and solutions being carried out by different WorldSkills Members during the current COVID-19 pandemic. While every organisation is facing similar situations and obstacles caused by contact restrictions, the strategies to conduct trainings, assessments and competitions differs significantly.

This public meeting follows initial internal conversations where we have exchanged ideas and learned different ways to organize trainings and competitions. These strategies range from:
(a.) Fully online training, to
(b.) On-site training in colleges with online assessments, to
(c.) Set-ups in large venues to secure physical distancing.

During this session we want to examine some of the examples that have been given and share first hand experiences from Members. We not only want to discuss new opportunities and chances of virtual skills competitions, but also the risks they create and the limits of digital learning.
