In Denmark the parliament in 2013 passed a teacher education reform that represents a shift from content steering to goal steering in accordance with the European Qualifications Framework.

The reform is a major challenge to the teacher education programs of Denmark in respect to planning and carrying through goal steered teaching, and performance-based assessments and examinations. On this background. On this background a conference and a symposium is held on these subject are held in Copenhagen 26 and 27 January 2015.
