Description of the Initiative
AES is tasked by ASEMME4 with the responsibility to regularly update the Compendium on Credits and Learning Outcomes from ASEM member countries. The second updated version of the Compendium was published by AES to coincide with ASEMME5 in 2015. In 2016 and 2017, AES asked the members to update the data on credit transfer and learning outcomes to be compiled to the third version of the Compendium. To date, data were received from Austria, Croatia, Denmark, Germany, Hungary, Japan, Korea, Lithuania, Norway, Portugal, Romania, Singapore, Thailand and United Kingdom.
During the third Expert Group Meeting of Interregional Credit Transfer Mechanisms and Learning Outcome Systems, it was decided to review the structure for the template of the compendium in order to achieve more coherence in the in the delivered data of the partner countries and make the compendium more user friendly. The working group will also develop a glossary to guarantee the same interpretation of all the terms used in the compendium. The information collection method as well as the way of dissemination of the compendium is also being reconsidered.
ASEM Partners and Stakeholders involved
The ASEM Education Secretariat is responsible for updating the compendium. The review of the compendium format and structure is realized in the Expert Group Meeting of Interregional Credit Transfer Mechanisms and Learning Outcomes systems. All ASEM partners are asked to provide input for the compendium.
