1 HEAR and ePortfolios Phil Gravestock

2 Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR) “The HEAR is a concise, electronic document produced by a higher education institution which provides a record of a student’s achievement during their time in higher education.”

3 Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR) “The HEAR: measures and records achievement, providing students with a much broader picture than hitherto ensures that employers have better information about the distinguishing qualities of different graduates fits into, and promotes, a culture of lifelong learning by appearing to be less of an abrupt educational ‘end point’.”

4 Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR) “The HEAR: begins in the first year of study and is accessible by the student at any time during their career with the institution. It is updated and validated at regular intervals by the institution – at least annually – and, as such, has the capacity to be used as a formative tool.”

5 Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR) Section 6.1. Additional information recorded under one of three category headings: 1.Additional awards – accredited performance in non-academic contexts and individual units/modules studied (e.g. credit-bearing volunteering) 2.Additional recognised activities – roles and activities undertaken by students which demonstrate achievement but for which no recognition is provided in terms of academic credit 3.University, professional and departmental prizes

6 Student Learning Experience Curriculum: accredited and formal Co-curriculum: not accredited, but verified, can involve application of knowledge and understanding from the formal curriculum, or development of graduate attributes which are part of broad programme outcomes Extra-curriculum: not accredited, not verified, but achievement may still contribute to development of graduate attributes

7 HEAR and ePortfolios Combining a student- driven e-portfolio with an electronic HEAR will enable students to present themselves and their achievements from volunteering, work experience, or life more fully and effectively to potential employers
