One of the demands that today’s society is making of the European Space of
Higher Education (ESHE) is the establishment of a system that favors providing students with a comprehensive education that aims to achieve the optimum development of the skills needed in our current society. Another requirement concerns reforming the methodologies applied in classrooms, focusing the emphasis on learning and evaluation (personal, social and professional) based on competences and giving students a more prominent role in these processes. This social and academic framework is based on an organic model of information in which information is reused, reinterpreted and returned.
We are talking about promoting complex methodological changes which involve the redefinition of the whole concept of learning and evaluation which are key aspects of the education system. Faced with this outlook, the Open University of Catalonia (UOC) has devised a new transverse evaluation instrument based on learning competences: the eTransfolio.
