Research Line Flexibility and assessment (part of IIE program)

Organisation profile

Layman's description

Flexibility concerns designing agile education that is responding to characteristics, prior knowledge, questions or situation of the learner. It concerns issues of, on the one hand, attractive, flexible presentation of content and, on the other hand, optimizing what a (new, future) student wants or needs by knowing as well as assessing where he/she stands or what he/she needs.

So flexibility and assessment can be considered as two faces of the same medal. This presupposes reliable and valid assessment of student characteristics, data collection and business intelligence. Addressing this theme requires expertise from different disciplines. It can also be linked to learning in organizations, which requires adapted and tailored, flexible learning materials.
