I have recently published a new article in the NICEC Journal with Ingrid Bårdsdatter Bakke and Erik Hagaseth Haug. In the article we look at how the face-to-face delivery of career guidance can be integrated with online delivery. We describe this as ‘integrated guidance’.
We look at models of integrated guidance in the context of the recent development of a guidance system in Norway. One of the advantages that Norway has had has been the opportunity to learn from the mistakes of others and to try out new and innovative approaches. A key opportunity that the country is keen to make the most of is the potential to use digital technologies to support guidance. Following a process of exploration of this issue the government has resolved to establish an e-guidance service located in Tromsø. However, at present the nature of this service is unclear. In this article we argue that that the concepts of (1) integrated guidance, (2) instructional design and (3) co-careering should be at the heart of the new service and indeed at the heart of the delivery of guidance across Norway.
