Keynote: Thinking……… Skills, Dispositions, Capacities, Competenc(i)es: Making sense of a curriculum jumble!
Initially, the talk will examine recent shifts in terminology, noting the growing prominence of the term ‘competency’. The reasons for this shift will be explored. Then, international curriculum frameworks as well as research syntheses on 2lst century learning will be interrogated in order to identify what types of learning are being identified as key competencies. Finally, a classification is proposed that captures skills, dispositions and values within a key competency framework and articulates the relationship with knowledge domains, both subject specific and transdisciplinary.
