PROVIDE is a professional development course on competence oriented learning and validation of competences for professionals in education and training.
Nowadays learning moves away from traditional supply oriented teaching (formal, curriculum based, de-contextualised) to what we call competence oriented learning, which is needs driven, situative and adapted to new learning spaces (either digital or practical).
This shift of paradigm to more demand driven learning means a challenge to educational professionals. It leads to new teaching roles and approaches, practical and/or project oriented training and coaching, a critical use of learning technologies and an integration of assessments and validation in the courses and learning offers.
In the course you will gather profound knowledge:
- on the concepts and instruments of competence based learning and validation of competences in changing societies and learning spaces;
- on the competences educational professionals need in order to plan, deliver, evaluate and validate learning processes under these new requirements;
- on innovative methodologies, didactics and instruments and
- on reference systems and validation systems for competences (in particular LEVEL5).
You will be enabled to:
- reflect on the current practices in your organisation (“How do we use this now and how could we use it in the future?”) and transfer the COL/Validation approaches to the own practice
- adapt and develop your courses and learning projects in open learning environment
- develop a pilot on validating competences in your organisations
The course is based on a blended learning approach – it consists of a 3 day training event, a preliminary phase, and a practice phase and a synchronous feed-back online conference. We work with a small number of energetic and experienced teachers/trainers. We invite you to be part of that team! Together you will prepare a professional learning project in your training environment. During the course you will be supported by the PROVIDE team. Back home you are expected to plan and realise a learning trajectory focussing on open competence oriented learning and teaching (if possible with the involvement of a few colleagues (trainers/ teachers)).
The course on hand is a general course that tackles the two aspects of modern, competence and needs driven learning in connection with suitable validation approaches. Additional modules related to PLANNING, DELIVERY, VALIDATION and EVALUATION as 2-day are offered as intensive courses. All modules can be combined.
