Description

As a holistic approach to improving student success, Comprehensive Learner Record (CLR) has the potential to positively impact the student success ecosystem. CLR is a dynamic, real-time portfolio, which is both a display of curricular, co-curricular, and experiential artifacts of learning and a digital skills “wallet” that is verified by the institution and linked to learning outcomes aligned to today’s employability skills. Launching a CLR initiative takes time, precision, and alignment planning and human and technology resources to align this initiative with the institutional mission and vision.

Join this hands-on Bootcamp that includes best practices coaching from higher ed leaders, technology innovators, and standards organizations. Discover how you can launch a student success initiative that includes CLR and authentic reflection across students’ holistic academic and experiential learning journey.

This experience will be immersive with participatory learning and idea-sharing. Bring your ideas, your curriculum projects, your ePortfolio initiatives and join this opportunity to take these initiatives further.

Background

The higher education transcript, codified around courses, credits and grades is now becoming more expressive, documenting more explicitly what has been learned, acquired, and practiced. Shifts in the delivery of post-secondary education are in full gear and the focus on outcomes and skills are at the forefront helping to usher in changes in the way higher education verifies degrees.

Comprehensive Learner Record (CLR) is at the epicenter of this change, helping to unpack evidence of learning and making it more explicit and meaningful to students, employers, and institutions. Stakeholders who use CLR as a vehicle for learning in real-time and an ecosystem of skills that employers value are providing valuable opportunities to share knowledge, skills, and abilities with a greater audience.

In Demographics and the Demand for Higher Education, economist and professor Nathan Grawe predicts the current college-going population will drop by 15 percent between 2025 and 2029 and continue to decline by another percentage point or two thereafter. This trend begins to close the door on the traditional pipeline to college and more widely opens the door to a more complex population of learners, adults with degrees, no degrees, partial degrees and the like. Institutions that proactively address these population shifts and need for changes to higher education course and content delivery are those who are ahead of recurrent enrollment melts. Course delivery that is more accessible and affordable to adult workers, stay-at-home parents, diverse learners, and employers who are partners in their employees’ education will survive and thrive.

Key Takeaways

It is our goal to provide the audience with the following intended key takeaways:

1. Consider your current efforts, partners, timelines, resources, and risks
2. Think beyond quick fixes and tackle broader issues and systems
3. Deliver authentic lifelong learning, skills recognition, and employability enablement in courses, co-curricular, and experiential activities
4. Create a student-centered institution using the Comprehensive Learner Record (CLR)
5. Build a sustainable momentum and demonstrate the impact of ongoing work to deliver CLR for authentic lifelong learning
