The Lithuanian College of Democracy in cooperation with representatives from Vytautas Magnus University, will present a scientific publication about competency modeling in the changing education system on August 26-28, 2022, at the 5th International Conference on Advanced Research in Social Sciences (ICARSS) in Cambridge, United Kingdom.
The main purpose of the publication, entitled “Assumptions of modeling competencies in transformative education,” is to reveal the connections between the competencies of transformational education and the competencies of social-emotional education, civic education, entrepreneurship, and the goals of the 2030 sustainable development agenda. The authors focus on finding solutions that promote the internalization of values, transformative educational priorities, and universal prototypes. The authors note that teachers integrate innovative, transformative education methods more and more flexibly in schools and other socio-educational institutions. Therefore, we aim to refine and substantiate transformative education competencies that would help teacher educators and in-service providers review and complement their existing practices.
Authors of the scientific report: prof. Dr. Giedrė Kvieskienė and Vytautas Kvieska from Vytautas Magnus University and dr. Eglė Celiesienė; Lithuanian Democratic Education College.
