The 7th conference on Competence Oriented Learning and Validation of non-formal and informal learning (VINFL) will be carried out on 22nd and 23rd of September 2016.
After the 10-years anniversary of REVEAL network conferences in 2015 in Mechelen (BE) the 2016-conference will be carried out in the city of Thessaloniki, hosted by the Aristotele University and the CEDEFOP.
This year the conference is organised by:
- PROMOTE network working on innovative approaches of competence oriented learning and VINFL in the field of business-academia mobility (internships and Erasmus mobilities),
- IMPACT consortium which has developed an systemic approach to interconnect VINFL with e-learning and learning technologies and
- OWL team representing a large scale project from the German Institute for Adult Education which provides an Open Web-based Learning Space for Professional Development for Adult Educators based on the principles of competence oriented learning and VINFL.
The conference (get the programme here) will be carried out in connection with the 3rd my-VITA award which will be given to the most innovative practice projects that integrate the VINFL in the fields of non-formal (Adult, Vocational and Higher Education) and informal learning settings.
As always, the REVEAL conference will bring together approximately 80 experts from practice, research, political and administrative stakeholders from the field of European Education to report on latest developments, innovative approaches and exchange on best practices and develop new projects in the field of competence based learning and validation.
