Education Ontology Modeling for Competency Gap Analysis

Abstract : Competency-based education was initially developed in response to growing criticism towards education considered as more and more disconnected from the societal evolutions, especially changes within the workplaces. To better address the problem, knowledge about the gap between the university curricula outcome and the industry requirements is important. This paper describes how ontology concept could be a relevant tool for an initial analysis and focuses on the assessment of the competences needed by the Information Technology market. It illustrates the use of ontologies for three identified end users: Employers, Educators and students.
