The EU 6th Framework Integrated Project TENCompetence is organising a workshop on soa and lifelong competence development on 11th and 12th of January 2007 in Manchester

Theme

One compelling argument for moving to a service oriented approach (soa) in e-learning applications and learning supporting systems is the promise of better support for lifelong learning. The online availability of resources such as formal and informal learning opportunities, past learning achievements and a variety of learning communities beyond the single institution is a key opportunity as well as a challenge for individuals and institutions alike.

At the same time, the functionality that can be made available using services promises to make it easier to integrate new, customised or innovative functionality in existing learning environments. Examples of such functionality includes simulations and collaborative learning activities. For this to happen, though, a number of issues need to be addressed that range from the purely pedagogical, via business model considerations to questions of software design and development.

To explore some of these issues the EU 6th Framework Integrated Project TENCompetence is organising a workshop on soa and lifelong competence development. The objective of the workshop is to identify and analyse current research and technologies in the intersection of the soa and lifelong learning fields, in the areas of their theory, application and use.This includes open, usable and accessible services for:

  • the creation, sharing, discovery and use of knowledge resources, learning activities and learning paths by any individual, team or organisation.
  • the development, use, monitoring and maintenance of competence frameworks for the different professions or domains of knowledge.
  • the assessment of competences
  • the registration, use and sharing of personal data (profiles, portfolios,...)
  • the discovery of suitable learning resources that are adapted to the users needs and profile
  • the support of users to navigate through all the possible learning resources to build specific competences
  • the support for users to learn in new fields and the support for the people who provide the support (e.g. by providing monitoring services, help by email handling).
