WS 4.3 Digital Support for Transformative Learning

This workstream focuses on the development of data dashboard capability for learners which will enable them to self-monitor progress, thereby increasing their digital literacy and empowering them to take control of their own learning. 

The workstream entails students assembling examples of their work in a repository/e-Portfolio tool to enable them to reflect on their strengths across the duration of their programme of study,  enabling them to demonstrate how they meet the stated learning outcomes. The e-Portfolio will be externally linkable to enable learners to share the record for purposes of job application of for further education, scholarship application etc. 

Overall objectives of this workstream include the following:

  1. Develop and deploy a learner dashboard to track progress through programmes of registration
  2. Plan/schedule transformative learning events across the TU Dublin campuses with appropriate access provisions to enable cross-disciplinary participation.
  3. Identify an-Portfolio standard for transformative learning record development and management.
  4. Offer academic integrity training to support taught programmes.
  5. Develop an integrated transformative learning record course handbook staff with appropriate training.
