Planning and Delivering Informal and Non-formal Learning with LEVEL5
LEVEL5 is not just about validation but it comes as holistic validation and learning system.
Hence t is designed to plan and deliver competence oriented learning – especially in informal and noin-formal contexts where no pre-described learning plans are available.
The LEVEL5 learning system builds on a simplified Plan-Do-Check step procedure:
The starting point of the planning is the so called “action field” in which the learner is located.
It describes context, actions, resources and objectives of his/her activities.
The conversion of this action field into a learning field is facilitated by the LEVEL5 reference
systems which derive the competences that are necessary to tackle the actions and solve
the tasks in the field.
The delivery of learning is highly dependent on the context. It can range from a rather informal,
self guided learning (e.g. in learning on the job or in mobility settings) to more formal
arrangements (e.g. in school projects or more guided continuing professional development
LEVEL5 largely supports blended, web-aided learning arrangements. The REVEAL community
offers state-of-the-art learning technologies and an open learning space for these purposes.
The check-element refers to the validation within LEVEL5. Dependent on the identified action
and learning field it covers the identification, documentation, assessment and certification of
competences. It is largely based on the LEVEL5 reference systems that facilitate individual
and contextualised validation. The learning outcomes are documented in LEVEL5 certificates
including the dynamic LEVEL5 cube.
