Evidencing levels of achievement for graduate employability
During 2013, Deakin will be testing technology solutions to assure capability standards, specifically digital badging with portfolios of student learning evidence: More.
Deakin University has created degree level performance descriptors for each of its generic graduate attributes--aligned with levels 7, 8 and 9 of the Australian Qualification Framework. These Deakin University Course Learning Outcomes Standards are contextualised, embedded, assessed and evidenced in every degree program (course) to assure AQF compliance through the Course Enhancement Sandpits Process.

Graduate employability is the achievement of skills, understandings and personal attributes that make graduates more likely to secure employment and be successful in their chosen occupations to the benefit of themselves, the workforce, the community and the economy (Yorke, 2006 p.8). The achievement of such attributes and capabilities is most likely to be enabled through a 360-degree evidence-based approach to curriculum enhancement [more about this? See Framework].
