Marketing Text Interviews with "critical friends" on Be-TWIN methodological tools
The interview questions were divided into two main topics – experiences with the implementation of the learning outcomes approach and rationale and potential usage of the Be-Twin methodology. The interview partners were supposed to know about the Be-Twin methodology beforehand. Therefore, they were provided with a related abstract and/or explanation.
The aim of the interviews was to reach both Universities and experts in higher education as well as specialists in vocational training and last but not least the institutions specialised in vocational training.
One part of the questionnaire for UNICA universities, as well a section of questions used for the interviews, were also devoted to the Be-Twin methodology (especially the Matrix) and its potential use.
The basic questions were: What is the use of learning outcomes – if and how they are used? Are ECTS credits allocated to learning outcomes or are they still in majority allocated to learning activities, i.e. to curriculum? The allocation of ECTS credits to learning activities was often used as an argument why there are barriers between both credit systems. Next questions were targeted towards where the institutions saw the advantages and disadvantages of the learning outcome methodology applied to study/training programmes and what were the challenges?

Result The result contains a comprehensive report of the main outcomes of the interviews with “critical friends”. Comments and suggestions for the improvement of the Be-TWIN methodology were analyzed and evaluated and fed the Transfer and Implementation Plan to be used as reference document for the adoption (in a preliminary and final version) of the revised and adapted methodology in view of testing in partners’ contexts.
Area of application Revision and adaptation of the methodological tools in view of testing in partners’ contexts.
