A system of connecting student reflective ePortfolios to experiential learning and skills development has been established within various courses and degree programs at UNSW.
This presentation will focus on the process of building student awareness of their professional skills development and graduate attributes through experiential opportunities and reflective practice within coursework. Professor Polly will also discuss how microcredentialing can be used to recognise these skills. Importantly, the value of microcredentialing for the purposes of future presentation/employability by students/graduates will be explored.
Join us as Professor Polly will be presenting the implementation of an institutional microcredentialing framework and related activities that have been developed and are ongoing via BadgeCop – our UNSW community of practice. These activities have been established and supported as part of a Scientia Education Investment Funded (SEIF#1) project that Patsie is presently leading at UNSW.
