Learning outcomes: Common framework – Different approaches to evaluation learning outcomes in Nordic countries

The adoption of the Bologna process has influenced the development of quality
assurance across many countries in Europe. In particular, the implementation of the
Framework for Qualifications in the European Higher Education Area has stimulated
discussion about the three cycle model, which uses generic descriptors for each cycle
based on learning outcomes and competences. This in turn has led both agencies and
institutions to seek to further define and understand the terms ‘learning outcomes’ and
‘competencies’ for use in their own national situations.

Learning Region Lake Constance - Case studies of easy access to information

The aim of the project is to enable people to gain easy access to information about learning opportunities whatever their age or existing level of educational achievement.

same theme. Since that time the expectations concerning the regional engagement

Learning SMEs - further education network

Innovation and competitiveness cannot be secured without a continuous further development of the vocational qualifications and competences of the employees. The tighter linking of universities, educational institutions and companies is of great importance. Specifically SMEs have not yet universally realised how important the strategical and continuous competence development of their skilled labour is.

Legge sulla Partecipazione della Regione Emilia Romagna

La legge regionale (n.03/2010) è stata approvata il 4 febbraio 2010 con il titolo “Norme per la definizione, riordino e promozione delle procedure di consultazione e partecipazione alla elaborazione delle politiche regionali e locali”.

Il provvedimento parte dall’idea di ampliare la partecipazione attiva e il coinvolgimento dei cittadini (coerentemente al principio costituzionale della sussidiarietà) ed è finalizzato a rendere concrete alcune forme di democrazia diretta (con il contributo finanziario della Regione a Comuni e Province che avvieranno alcune procedure partecipative).

LA LEGGE REGIONALE DELLA TOSCANA SULLA PARTECIPAZIONE: UNA VIA INNOVATIVA PER ARRICCHIRE LA DEMOCRAZIA, PER UN NUOVO PATTO TRA ISTITUZIONI E CITTADINI

LE PREMESSE POLITICHE
L’idea di una legge regionale sulla partecipazione nasce da una diffusa
preoccupazione: da una parte, le istituzioni della democrazia rappresentativa vivono e
sentono una crisi di legittimazione, ossia possiedono tutti i titoli per assumere
decisioni, ma questo si verifica, sempre più spesso, nel vuoto e nella “solitudine” dei

LernDO.connect - knowledge management, synergy and innovation

The sub project LernDO.connect develops synergies between the sub projects and from the project to other educational and learning activities in the region and beyond. The starting point is that thematic, methodical and conceptional connections exist between various projects that are often not realised. This leads to that possible synergy effects are overlooked.

Through LernDO.connect the synergy effects are made visible and a platform of know how is created, which is the precondition for further innovations. The activities include:
