Abstract

Competence-based education (CBE) is the leading paradigm for education reform of Vocational Education and Training in European countries. This study addresses the association of collective team identification, task interdependence, team learning, and team size, with the implementation of CBE (N = 1008 teachers, 93 teams). Information processing in teams was positively associated with the implementation of CBE. Furthermore, trends revealed that information storage and retrieval, task interdependence, and smaller team sizes were associated with less disagreement within the team about the CBE-level of the educational program. These results provide further insight into the importance of team learning for education reform.
