Learning Design SIG webinar on approaches to professional skills building across degree programs
17 June @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm AEST
Where does learning and development of professional skills come from within a university degree program? The short answer is everywhere. A system of connecting experiential learning and professional skills development with student reflective blogs has been established within various courses and degree programs at UNSW. This presentation will focus on the process of building student awareness of their professional skills development and graduate attributes through experiential learning opportunities via assessment tasks authentic to discipline and reflective practice/ePortfolio pedagogy within coursework. This work was initially generated in courses within the medical science degree program and then translated across various courses and degree programs at UNSW. The value of using badging and microcredentialling to recognise these skills in job ready graduates will be discussed. Patsie will present an institutional badging/microcredentialling framework model which she led and developed with BadgeCop – a UNSW community of practice, supported with UNSW Scientia Education Investment Funding.
Professor Patsie Polly (SFHEA) is a UNSW Scientia Education Fellow and Co-Director of the Scientia Education Academy, Education Focussed Academic Champion and Professor in Pathology, within the School of Medical Sciences, UNSW Medicine, UNSW Sydney. Patsie is recognised nationally and internationally as a scholar. Patsie is an invited international ePortfolio AAEEBL Board member and national ePortfolios Australia Committee Member.
Patsie infuses her extensive medical research experience into educational practice by strategically integrating innovative adaptive lessons, ePortfolio pedagogy and collaborative communities of practice for students to learn career-relevant professional skills. Patsie leads BadgeCop, a community of practice focussed on micro-credentialing at UNSW.
