Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademicpeer-review


Throughout the years competence-based management approaches have proved to be a critical tool in human resource management, vocational training and performance management. As a result, competence-based ap-proaches are often adopted as the key paradigm in both formal or informal education and training programs. Despite this fact, the Technology-enhanced Learning (TeL) research community has only recently consid-ered undertaking research towards technology-enhanced competence-based learning and training. To this end, there exist a number of open is-sues such as: how can we model competences; how can we assess compe-tences; how can we develop training resources and training activities that target specific competences. The scope of this chapter is to contribute to this field by addressing the issue of competence modeling in technology-enhanced competence-based training, that is, how can we model and repre-sent competence-related information in a system meaningful way.
