Evidence of Learning

I think this is actually quite a good report and regret only that it doesn't dive into deeper detail. That said, the framework around 'evidence of learning' appears to me on first reading to be sound. Here it is:

  • Experience, including formal and informal learning and on-the-job (could include practical - SD)
  • Validate - review experience through assessment protocols, confirm skills
  • Assemble - curate experiences into a narrative, develop personal profile
  • Promote - present narrative for employment goals, attract candidates
  • Align - assess feedback tools for employment fit, provide workforce feedback (aka 'close the loop')

What I like is that is focused on much more than testing and credentials, and is therefore broadly applicable, and it focuses debate on specific entities, for example, hat should count as 'experience'? Via Inside Higher Ed. See also Tyton's evidence of learning Supplier Ecosystem report.
