Transform EDU Week Event 1 – Developing a Transformative Education Framework for Higher Education
November 22 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Transform-EDU aims to place transformative learning centre-stage in higher education. The project has focused on innovative approaches to learning where elements of structured programmes, co and extra-curricular events are purposefully integrated to create the rich learning environments that are required to foster transformative learning.
We present a framework that recognises that, whilst learning outcomes are mostly achievable in structured discipline-specific academic curricula, 21st Century Graduate profiles demanded by employers are dynamic, requiring agile learning environments to produce graduates who meet skills demanded by enterprise.
We highlight TU Dublin’s Student Transformative Learning Record (STLR) as a means of capturing and authenticating transformative learning that takes place, under the following competencies: civil knowledge and skills, global culture competence, health and wellbeing development, leadership, teamwork, research and innovation competence building. We highlight the student and staff voice during our event. We outline examples of co-curricular events that support exposure, integration and transformation.
