Competence Learning Brought to Life
How Finnish Teachers Actualize a New Curriculum
Keywords:competence learning, curriculum change, Finland, inquiry learning, project-based learning, comparative education, assessment
As a Fulbright Fellow in Finland, I researched Finnish pedagogical strategies and systemic norms that implement competence based learning. In working with classroom teachers, school administrators, and university experts, I learned how Finnish teachers are responding to new curriculum directives, as well as structural barriers that make teaching towards competences difficult. This paper is an abridged recollection of my findings, with specific emphasis on tangible strategies, norms and ideas that American teachers can implement in their classrooms immediately.
