More about B-Twin
The methodology proposed by Be-TWIN strives to be instrumental for “a dialogue” between two important instruments in higher education (HE) and vocational education and training (VET) – the ECTS and ECVET credit systems. Underneath the layer of learning outcomes both ECVET and ECTS carry different, additional, yet equally important secondary information layers. Whereas ECVET informs about the relative importance of a unit of learning outcomes vis-à-vis the overall qualification, ECTS indicates the time invested to obtain a certain learning outcome in terms of the workload necessary for an average student in full-time mode of delivery.
Be-TWIN sets out to go beyond mere vertical or horizontal mobility. It attempts to conceptualise training and learning as a lifelong continuum which offers individuals various points of entry and departure throughout their lives.
