The January 2011 newsletter of the project VIRQUAL is out now. The newsletter includes information about Task force 2 and Task force 3.
Task force 2 - A comprehensive analysis of the EQF implementation in Europe compiling 32 country reports on EQF/NQF implementation, at levels 5 to 8. Additionally, the situation of e‐learning in what concerns legislation and practice in each of the 32 countries was also reported. This task force is also organising a series of Webinars on the general theme of e-learning and EQF but each focusing in different topics, such as Virtual Mobility, Learning Outcomes and e-Assessment and EQF and recognition of competences.
Task force 3 - How can we support teachers and curriculum developers defining, writing, or choosing high quality learning outcomes? How can we contribute to a global architecture of learning outcomes / competences? What is a useful classification system for learning outcomes / competences? Task 3 is answering these questions by creating a web.bsed database: the ILO repository . One of the fundaments of its data structure is the classification of learning outcomes according to EQF which distinguishes knowledge, skills and competences.
