Disciplining the Disciplines? How Qualification Schemes Are Written up at Study Program Level in Norwegian Higher Education
Friedrich, Philipp E.; Prøitz, Tine S.; Stensaker, Bjørn
Teaching in Higher Education, v21 n7 p870-886 2016
Qualification frameworks are spreading rapidly, not least in Europe following the introduction of the European Qualification Framework. The impact of such frameworks are contested, and the article contributes to this debate by analyzing how a selected group of different study programs in Norwegian higher education is adapting to the newly launched national qualification framework. The findings show that there are distinct differences as to how universities and colleges, as well as how different disciplines write up their study programs according to the new framework. In the conclusion, we discuss the implication of the findings for current debates about the relevance and function of qualification framework in higher education.
