European Inventory on Validation: 2018 Update
The just published 2018 update of the inventory on validation of non-formal and informal learning is a unique record of how validation is being used nationally, regionally and locally across Europe. It contains the state of play and an overview of developments for 36 countries illustrated by good practice examples.
It also includes thematic reports on key issues in designing and implementing validation initiatives plus three international case studies. The inventory is the result of a three-year process based on the work of a large network of national experts, extensive review of documents, and interviews with key stakeholders.
3s contributed to the project by preparing the country reports for Austria (Karin Luomi-Messerer), Bulgaria (Mariya Dzhengozova) and a thematic report on ‘How digital forms of assessment and self-assessment might place a new challenge and opportunity for assessment methodologies’ (Karin Luomi-Messerer in cooperation with Ingrid Portenkirchner).
