'Recognising and presenting student learning in the 21st century: a work in progress'
 The fourth Annual National Seminar on implementing the Higher Education Achievement Report and related work.

We have come a long way since pilot work on the HEAR was initiated in 2008.  In the UK – and across the world - it is increasingly recognised that:

  • the learning and achievement of our students is not limited to their academic studies;
  • institutions need to make decisions about the extent to which they wish to recognise and value such 'lifewide learning' and achievements as part of the statements they make about the achievements of their graduates;
  • the formative use of 'richer records' of student achievements can support processes of reviewing and planning, and help students set targets and take increasing responsibility for their own development;
  • students may need support in making use of such records with third parties such as potential employers; in an online world the digital presentation of such records, and the supporting evidence for these, will be increasingly important.

Our aims within the Seminar are threefold:

  1. To help you to connecting the HEAR to other initiatives (‘making the case’ for why and how the HEAR matters now).
  2. To showcasing emerging and interesting practice.
  3. Looking ahead, to help colleagues:
  • draw upon existing learning and approaches to enhance student and employer engagement, supporting local development work;
  • develop a collective view as to how the HEAR should be developed and supported nationally.
