May 10 - Design Xcri extension directions v2 1

  1. 1. The Further Role of XCRI – Why XCRI? <ul><li>XCRI is a powerful lever in institutions because it is an agreed standard </li></ul><ul><li>You can build systems round XCRI </li></ul>
  2. 2. Extension Directions? <ul><li>Modules </li></ul><ul><li>Elements within modules </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Learning outcomes </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Competencies </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Graduate attributes/skills </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Student activities? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Encode what is currently required by QAA </li></ul>
  3. 3. Extensions (Minority concerns) <ul><li>Support academic planning and validation processes </li></ul><ul><ul><li>e.g.Business plan </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. Observations <ul><li>Validation documents are written in academic /administrative language </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Not student friendly </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Not employer/external validation panel member friendly </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Inhibits reuse of content for marketing, student handbooks, etc. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Do we need approval/validation documentation in academic speak ? (probably not) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Multiple audiences for Course Information </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Could XCRI support multilingual information, i.e. for specified audiences? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Fears that the quality of data currently collected by validation may not support the envisaged level of analysis/reuse </li></ul><ul><ul><li>e.g. learning outcomes that cannot map to competencies </li></ul></ul>
