Transcript

  • 1. 1 InLOC: a competence structure standard to inject new motivation for portfolios Simon Grant, CETIS at the ePIC conference, London 2013-06-09
  • 2. 2 The paper abstract is about...  people using tools when they are motivated  employment: the big motivator  gap in e-portfolio use for practical recruitment  InLOC – the new competence structure standard  “integrating learning outcomes and competences”  and something that could be a virtuous cycle:  frameworks published with URIs in standard InLOC format  tools are built to use common definitions and frameworks  employers use InLOC tools for recruitment  users use InLOC tools for job-seeking  portfolios reawakened to showcase shortlisted individuals  more motivation for InLOC frameworks and tools
  • 3. What is InLOC?  a European expert project that finished earlier this year  drawing on earlier work including “InteropAbility”  InLOC specifies a particular way of expressing any structure (often “framework”) of skills, competence, etc.  an “information model” with standard formats  that can be processed freely and easily by software  together with URIs for each part of the structure  structures initially represented in XML  also potentially in JSON and RDF  specifications and other information available at  http://wiki.teria.no/display/inloc/Home
  • 4. InLOC features  distinguishes structures and definitions  structures: like frameworks, relating a set of …  definitions: separate skills, knowledge items, competences  definitions can occur in different structures  structures can take any form, and be of any depth  clear and principled treatment of levels  both defining levels and attributing levels  can easily represent multilingual information  scope for all the most relevant educational metadata  single structure for all relationships and compound attributes with easy mapping to RDF (linked data)
  • 5. e.g. the European e-Competence Framework (e-CF)  look at the PDF  the structure is the framework as a whole  the definitions are every piece of text setting out something that people could know or do  available from http://www.ecompetences.eu/  for an explanation of how to represent it in InLOC  http://purl.org/net/inloc/InLOC+explained+through+example  the InLOC XML for the e-CF is available  from http://wiki.teria.no/display/inloc/XML  http://wiki.teria.no/download/attachments/24315835/e-CF_V2.xml
  • 6. But today's presentation is...  an start to illustrating the complex web of factors that seem to underlie the future success of InLOC  complex diagram, built up slowly  shows a plausible analysis of the virtuous circle  we'll walk along the main tracks of the diagram  please come back to it if you are interested!  right now...
  • 7. What needs to be done  persuade authorities to publish frameworks as InLOC  win the argument for policy and principle first  build tools to help authorities build InLOC structures  get portfolio (and other) tools to use InLOC information  get employers to use recruitment services that  use common terms and InLOC frameworks  start with matching services delivering short lists  link through to detailed portfolios as and when wanted  then we hope to sit back and watch as portfolio usage grows!
  • 8. Thanks!  thanks for your attention  I'm happy to advise or consider being involved in any projects that could use InLOC, and can also recommend other colleagues  questions? asimong@gmail.com @asimong
