You have likely been exposed to Comprehensive Learner Record (CLR) in some way before and are wondering what it takes to actually develop and implement one. You may also be wondering more about the possibilities, uses, and what a CLR even looks like. Is it a portfolio? Is it verifiable? Is it really portable? This session will provide participants with the core components that are required for creating a meaningful CLR. These include determining your pathway, purpose, and need for establishing a CLR initiative at your institution—capturing, assessing, validating, and recording learning across various learning activities (courses, co-curriculum, internships, etc.) and formulating them into a CLR. Through a case study approach, together we will discuss the how, why, and when for CLR, data integration, and the IMS CLR Standard for making these data interoperable and ultimately create a CLR Start-up Guide for successful design and implementation of CLR at your institution.

Key Takeaways

  1. Identify purpose for starting a CLR initiative at your institution
  2. Determine the components of your path for a meaningful CLR
  3. Examine case studies that support your CLR initiative
  4. Design a ‘Getting Started Guide’ for institutional implementation and buy-in
