From Competence-Based Teaching to Competence Based Learning: The Case of Generic Competencies in the Faculty of Education at the Eduardo Mondlane University in Mozambique
Van der Linden, Josje; Mendonca, Marta
Perspectives in Education, v24 n3 p37-51 Sep 2006
The article explains how a formative evaluation in the context of a university in a developing country involving different stakeholders contributed to the development of proposals to improve ongoing educational practices. The case to be discussed is the implementation of generic competencies in the Faculty of Education at the Eduardo Mondlane University in Mozambique. The evaluation was carried out when the first group of Master's students of the faculty was about to finish their studies. It shows how the evaluation of a competence-based curriculum can bring university staff, their students and representatives of the world of work together. The common goal is the improved training of competent professionals, taking into account the learning process of the students, their professional practices and the specific difficulties they encounter.
