Going for Gold – E-Portfolios, Extracurricular Activities and the HEAR

The E-learning Unit is leading on a strand of the University’s Going for Gold Strategy under the pillar ‘Excellence in Student Employability’.

The overall aim of this workstream (3.4) is to improve graduate employability by providing a suite of verified extracurricular activities that can be included on the HEAR transcript. This will include LinkedIn Learning courses and an e-portfolio training course which will enable students to record and reflect on their learning in QMplus Hub thus enhancing their employment prospects.

There are 4 parts to our workstream:

3.4.3 Develop student skills in the use and value of e-portfolios
Deliver a new course open to all students focussing on the value of reflecting on learning, recording extracurricular activities, completing a skills review, collecting evidence of their learning and exploiting this when they graduate. Academic advisors could potentially give feedback on e-Portfolio use and the course would also be validated and could appear on the HEAR transcript.
