The forum will focus on
Practices: How do we assess and accredit evidence of learning, particularly in generic skills and attributes, for graduate success? What works well now, and how can we sustain and scale up such practices? What works less well, and how can we improve through sustainable practices?
Places: How might we authenticate, warrant and accredit learning evidence in the digital economy? What are the challenges emerging from the wide-scale adoption of digital technologies in higher education, and how might these be addressed? What are the opportunities emerging from the wide-scale adoption of digital technologies in higher education, and how might innovations be trialled, evaluated and implemented in sustainable ways? In the wake of such innovations, what might be the best use of time for accreditation on campus and in the workplace?
People: What might be the role(s) of industry (including experts, professional bodies and alumni) in such processes? What is the potential for self and peer assessment and accreditation? What are the implications and possibilities for academic roles and workloads?
Public accountability: How might we record and report authenticated and accredited learning—to students, the community, and regulatory authorities?
