Competence


Modelling, assessing, developing and managing competencies

Competencies aggregate the knowledge, abilities and skills, enabling us to act in an organised and creative way in unknown situations. We focus on modelling competencies, innovative ways of assessing competencies and ways of developing competencies. We develop scientifically sound solutions that we put to the test in the field. For example, web based IT-solutions for diagnosing competencies offer a large potential for modern competence management systems.


Learning, Training, Learning Transfer and Learning Culture

Work-related learning can be split up into formal and informal learning. For the effectiveness of learning, learning culture is of great importance. Furthermore, we are interested in researching learning-enhancing conditions at the university. In the context of formal learning, particularly with regards to workshop research, learning transfer plays a central role. In our research. We investigate the relevant factors for successful transfer of a workshop’s contents into everyday work.
