Before we design a competencybased assignment (1)• What is the key competence?• What is the workprocess?• What are the perfomance indicators? (in k, s and c!)
Before we design a competencybased assignment (2)• What is the key competence? – Mother tongue, foreign language?• What is the workprocess? – Reading, Listening, Speaking, Writing,• Which perfomance indicator? – Which knowledge do we need? – Which skills are requiered? – Which (and how) competencies must be accomplished? – And at what reference level!?!?
Design rules for your team1. What do we want to teach the students?2. What is their reference level at the start?3. What is their reference level at the end?4. How do we want to teach it? (which kind of assignment and in what form)5. How do we want to interact with each other and our students?6. How do students learn? (conceptual or integrated?)7. What do we have to develop?8. Will our mission be accomplished when we are ready?
Design tools (Case Study)1. Title (and an abstract)2. What will be expected from you? (introduction, objectives)3. Suppose you are… (the story, simulation, Leitmotiv)4. What should you do? (the content (theory) of the assignment (s))5. When will you do what ? (timetable/schedule)6. Let’s go.. (practical content of the assignment (s))7. Which other information do you need? (Sources, etc.)8. Show us what you accomplished. (Portfolio, evidence, presentation, website)9. How did things go? (Evaluation,reflection)10. Attachments (criteria, appoinments, other)
Forms of a competency based asignment• Form? – assesment, digital, online, evidence based, portfolio, masterproof, instructional, training, project, test, groupwork?• How? – from guided to non-guided learning (aggregation models) – visiting professors, (incompany training) – with or without reflection
