  • ear Virqualers Concerning the EDEN workshop, I am sending a proposal for structuring the session, in line with what we discussed in Vienna. The document in attachment includes 5 worksheets, 2 to use as reference and 3 for the group work: . the Learning Outcomes of EQF . the list of assessment methods, with descriptions . 3 x matrix of LOs / Assessment for each type of LOs: knowledge, skills, competences. The idea is that we will have 6 groups, each of them working on one matrix. This means that we will have two different groups working on the same matrix and this can be interesting to compare results. Each group should be moderated by one of the partners, to promote discussion and guarantee the achievement of results. Structure .15 mins to present the project, EQF Learning Outcomes and the list of assessment strategies . 40 mins for group work
