Marketing Text The concept catalogue of core competences for Learning Facilitators in ACE is an interim result of the Delphi survey and marks the first important step towards a transnational catalogue of core competences for Learning Facilitators in ACE. It represents the difference between the form of the first questionnaire made up by the researchers and a possible range of core competences which is more related to the everyday practice and language of Learning Facilitators in ACE. The product provides material to make the research process transparent.
The product is the interim result of the research phase in the project and has been identified after conducting the first wave of the Delphi survey. It is a concept catalogue of core competences for Learning Facilitators in ACE. The catalogue was gained by applying a factor analysis combined with an analysis of the free text responses and synthesizing the whole across the transnational response. Through the data analysis it turned out which of the proposed competences are “very important” or “important”. The analysis also showed which of these competences have to be reformulated to meet the everyday language of the Learning Facilitators. Moreover a number of additional important competences were identified which had not been included in the questionnaire at the first stage. Based on these analyses, the concept catalogue summarizes proposes a list of competencies which are considered to be highly important for ACE Learning Facilitators by an international expert sample. These competencies are articulated into the following nine domains:
- personal qualities
- interpersonal behavior and communication with learners
- cooperation with the external environment
- planning and management
- access and progression learners
- subject-related, specialist domain
- monitoring and assessment of learning processes
- didactical-methodological domain
- personal and professional development and reflection.
