A phenomenographic analysis of the implementation of competence-based education in higher education
TATE Volume 50, Number 1, ISSN 0742-051X Publisher: Elsevier Ltd
After one decade of Competence-Based Education (CBE), the need arises to investigate the experiences and implementation of CBE in contemporary higher education. A phenomenographic analysis using interviews was conducted with three different groups of stakeholders, namely curriculum coordinator, teachers and students at 26 different educational institutions, providing three different types of educational programmes (ICT and Media, Management, Teacher Education). Results suggest that CBE is emerging and that the majority of the institutions designed their education through a mix of traditional and competence-based teaching and assessment methods. Nevertheless, some obstacles appeared as restrictions to succeeding in the further implementation of CBE.
