Competences: the case for JISC



A presentation given to JISC and CETIS colleagues in Bristol, 2009-04-29, on the reasons why JISC might want to engage with the topic of competences in their programmes and funding.

    Competences: the case for JISC Competences: the case for JISC Presentation Transcript

    • The case for competences
        • Simon Grant
        • 2009-04-29
    • Known motivators
      • Learners keeping track of learning
      • Learners transferring between institutions
      • Learners having summary of what they have learned
      • HEIs producing useful HEAR, DS, transcript
      • HEIs preparing students for next steps
      • F/HEIs collaborating in educational ventures
      • HEIs broadening course intake, opening up pathways
      • Professional bodies setting learning agenda
      • Employers engaging with HE, if skills are relevant
    • Common points: intersect how?
      • Personal development – planning goals
      • Education – learning outcomes
      • Assessment – criteria
      • Reporting – HEAR, DS, etc. possibilities
      • For courses, jobs, memberships – requirements
      • Career, professional development – skills, competence
        • including the NOSs of the SSCs
    • Technical openings
      • HEAR
      • Europass – Learner Mobility documents (incl. DS)
      • XCRI and (closely related European) MLO
      • LEAP2A
      • We are closely involved in all of the above
      • Some others not so close, e.g.
      • HR-XML
      • The idea would be to coordinate with all, not build in
      • (IEEE RCD is known, but far from a full solution)
      • Focus on interrelationships across frameworks
    • Evidence of interest
      • CEN European Learner Mobility discussion
        • setting up SIG for competence
      • PIOP projects final reports
      • Medical education interest
        • Leeds, ALPS CETL
        • Scottish NHS e-portfolio
        • seems like all others spoken with have active interest
      • JISC projects
        • past e.g. ioNW2
        • present e.g. SRC
    • Work ideas already on agenda
      • PIOP / LEAP2A work identified
        • but this should not be seen in isolation
        • plausible links to several other activities
          • (indeed, that's the main point of new focus on competence)
      • Multipurpose meeting probably July 1 st
        • use example of medical education requirements
        • look at tool capabilities
        • serves LEAP2A extension
        • but also may identify other needs
    • Describe
      • What are the findings of other studies / reports? Can they be brought together in a framework relevant to JISC purposes?
      • What common domain model of skill/competence would work across all the relevant areas in several domains?
        • What features are needed?
        • What distinctions between what aspects of competence?
      • How do frameworks need to be cross-linked?
        • How can we maximise the potential to establish equivalence across frameworks?
    • Create
      • Interoperable frameworks of competence suitable for portfolio tools
        • Information model
        • Experimental specification
        • Coordinated with LEAP2A but not part of it
        • Aim to allow tools simple plug-in of frameworks
        • Start with real requirements of medical education
      • Demonstrator tools for managing equivalences
      • Demonstrator tools for pathway discovery
