Student presents DLM poster at University Learning & Teaching conference

24 June 2013  |  0 COMMENTS  |  Learning Maps

We were really please when Helen Rogerson presented a poster at this years Learning and Teaching Conference at Newcastle University.

Helen, in her final year as a dental student, mapped course outcomes to the Newcastle Graduate Skills Framework (NGSF), which is a framework of transferable skills and attributes developed by the Careers Service and used University wide. The NGSF is important because it promotes transferable skills and personal development, and also links into extra curricula opportunities 'Ncl+' offered by the University.

Helen's mapping work was no small accomplishment. It built on previous work by over 20 course leaders who had entered their course outcomes into Dynamic Learning Maps and then mapped these to the outcomes of their professional body the GDC. This resulted in over 1,600 course outcomes over the 5 year dental programme. That left Helen with a lot of work to do!

The presentation was included as part of our JISC funded Embedding DLM project. We would also like to thank Lydia Wysocki and colleagues in QuILT who organised the Learning and Teaching conference at Newcastle University.

Congratulations to Helen who has just graduated, with Honours and Distinction, and starts work in August!
