Pedagogical Vocabularies Reports available

Two final reports have been published by the JISC Pedagogical Vocabularies Project, which has looked at the development and use of vocabularies in UK post-16 education sector.

The JISC Pedagogical Vocabularies Project was a short study, managed by CETIS to scope the potential for identification, development and use of pedagogical vocabularies for the UK post-16 and HE communities. After a period of data gathering and community consultation, a Working Group of experts from various sectors and communities developed two reports along with recommendations to JISC that will be used to inform future development in this area.

The two reports are:

  1. Pedagogical Vocabularies Review, which inventories existing pedagogical vocabularies, including flat lists, taxonomies, thesauri, ontologies and classification schemes, relevant to the UK post-16 and HE education sectors, with reference to current work in Europe.
  2. Vocabulary Management Technologies Review, which scopes current standards, specifications, technologies and methodologies for capturing, developing and managing vocabularies.

These reports and the accompanying recommendations are available from the JISC website at
