Validating exemplary projects in specified informal learning contexts

This work area is focusing on the validation of informal learning in projects for non- mainstreaming target groups and learners in European projects.

The work package consisted of the following units:

  • Evaluation of so called micro-projects in different informal learning contexts. Each partner was supposed to evaluate two of these projects and validate the learning outcomes with the help of the LEVEL5 approach. Outcomes of the micro projects may be accessed here.
  • Validating the evaluation according to quality standards (validity, reliability and objectivity). The output of this task is a collection of relevant quality criteria for the LEVEL5 assessment and evidencing system.
  • Establishing an accreditation system for informal learning. In the framework of ACT-NET accreditation quidelines were produced that form the basis for the LEVEL5 evaluation approach utilised by the REVEAL Network.
