The 2018-2019 Council on Learning and Teaching Excellence continues to explore the implementation and assessment of VIU’s Graduate Attributes. My group is focused on ways students can represent their learning. One challenge we’ve identified is that students are unfamiliar with the attributes, or are unable to recognize an attribute within themselves. Without making this connection, students don’t know what they are trying to represent. Our group is using a survey approach to learn more about how students interpret the graduate attributes. From there, we hope to create tools to help students identify specific attributes that are most important to them, or ones they wish to strengthen, and suggest ways they can illustrate growth in those areas.
