Implementation stage & efforts to date

Design stage 

  • Development of Comprehensive Learning Records, Learning and Employment Records 
  • Working with third party groups or intermediaries

Goals for participation

  • Create CLR (called TRAIL) for students to better highlight  out of classroom learning that occurs on  campus and in community. Have a draft of what this might look like, and are at phase of finding and creating software to track/display this information for each student.  
  • Plan to pilot by Fall ’23 and roll out by Summer ’24. 
  • Collecting activities students are involved in and coding them to our learning outcomes. 
  • Assistance and information on best practices and technology support would be appreciated.
