  • 1. Not
future‐proofed
but
future‐focused:
 graduate
a2ributes
and
the
digital
university Helen

  • 2. Rethinking graduate attributes■ How
are
(personal,
social,
workplace,
community,
poliDcal,
 academic,
professional...)
pracDces
changing
as
a
result
of
digital
 technologies
and
networks?■ What
kind
of
graduates
will
thrive
in
these
new
pracDce
contexts?■ What
experiences
do
students
need
to
have
to
become
fluent
in
 these
pracDces?
How
do
they
integrate
these
experiences
into
 coherent
personal,
professional
and
learning
pathways?■ How
can
universiDes
be=er
value,
support
and
develop
these
 pracDces? www.technologyenhancedlearning.net 2 31/08/2011
  • 3. Sources
for
thinking: LLiDA
study
(JISC
2009) Ideas of employability, citizenship and graduate identity are being re-interpreted for a digital age, in which knowledge is ubiquitously available and relationships are increasingly managed online. Institutions must position themselves to respond quickly and flexibly to the need for new kinds of capability, and to recognise and represent graduate capabilities in new ways.www.technologyenhancedlearning.net 3 31/08/2011
  • 4. Sources for thinking: Plymouth TEL strategy Technology-enhanced is the norm (embedding of TEL and associated pedagogies) Institutional technologies are not the only show in town Multiply-located, discontinuous, multi- media, interdisciplinary experiences Only digitally literate staff and students can knit it all togetherwww.technologyenhancedlearning.net 4 31/08/2011
  • 5. Sources for thinking: Graduate destinations Loss of traditional professional jobs: more associate professional, technical Emerging (modern and new) professions dominated by ICT and digital media More graduates go on to be self-employed; rise of the portfolio; career Changing career patterns and employment opportunities >90% of all jobs require ICT competenceThis is not real data from the University of Plymouth but animage released by flickr user bitchcakesny under CC by-nc-sa www.technologyenhancedlearning.net 5 31/08/2011

  • 8. Findings• Students
want
24/7
access
to
course
info
&
learning
materials,
on
the
devices
 they
use• They
expect
to
use
their
own
technologies
on
campus:
but
these
are
oWen
less
 up‐to‐date,
portable
or
robust
than
we
might
imagine• They
have
diverse
preferences
for
social
and
communicaDonal
media:
some
 like
to
separate
personal
/
study
spaces• They
need
opportuniDes
to
reflect
on
and
develop
their
own
strategies
for
 using
TEL:
inducDon,
skills
sessions,
e‐porZolios
help• There
is
a
need
for
consistency
from
tutors,
and
clarity
about
digital
pracDces
 at
course
level• Students
value
e‐learning
experiences
where
these
are
clearly
relevant
to
their
 long‐term
goals www.technologyenhancedlearning.net 8 31/08/2011
  • 9. The
survey• Based
on
Learning
Literacy
in
a
Digital

• expands
on
