TIPEIL TRANSFER OF AN INNOVATIVE PORTFOLIO TO EVALUATE INFORMAL LEARNING
TIPEIL is based on the outcomes achieved by the implementation of the “INTRA and EGEIS” transnational projects that ontributed to the development of a specific tool – the digital portfolio – and a methodology, with the aim of supporting the identification and valorisation of informal and non formal learning.Though the portfolio in itself has ancient roots, its most recent use (as a methodology for the recognition of acquired competencies and for the empowerment of the cognitive capacities of students) implies an innovation that stems from the recent changes occurred in the theoretical conception of learning: according to the studies realised, it is necessary to focus on the complexity and pervasiveness of learning considering it as a part of the human behaviour linked to the different situations to which all individuals take part.In this view, different types of learning are distinguishable with respect to the contexts in which the learning takes place and the characteristics that learning encloses. In particular, there have been focused three typologies: formal, non formal, informal. Within this frame, the project focused on the valorisation of competences that young and adult workers developed within informal and non formal contexts. The availability of methods and tools applied to reach this goal has been identified in the European Inventory on validation of non formal and informal learning.
