(similar model to Doctoral Training Centre?) • What platform would be used for a feedback logbook/portfolio? • How can this be used to encourage good feedback practice from teaching staff? • How can this be integrated into employability (i.e. through HEAR/Sheffield Graduate)? • Can the process be professionalised – recognised by potential employers?
