PILOT of the iPORTFOLIO

A key area of development is the enhancement and rebranding of the ePortfolio system as the University’s iPortfolio system (currently in trial with the Graduate School).

The iPortfolio will provide a customised personal learning environment for students that connects to and complements the Learning Management System (LMS) and offers them a way to map and record their personal journey via portfolio artefacts and learning and career planning resources.

role in relation to teaching and learning data and
specific to the various surveys across the institution.

TEACHING AND LEARNING DATA AUDIT
- In preparation for the QAC 3rd Round Audit, TLC is working with an external consultant to conduct an audit of the variation of ways that the institution collects and uses data related to Learning and Teaching. This consultant will seek input from Stakeholders (Deans, Heads of Departments / Units / Programme Coordinators) on the types of data useful for them for curriculum and pedagogical Quality Assurance and Quality Improvement. They will review the current Institutional Surveys and Student Course Teaching and Learning Evaluating survey as fit for purpose and prepare a written report that identifies a framework for the implementation of Learning Analytics at Lingnan University.
(This report would capture the variation of ways teaching and learning data is captured, stored, accessed and acted upon and also include a benchmark comparison on our current practices with recommendations for improvement).

ld

OBATL SUPPORT
TLC is pleased to support staff in curriculum and OBATL work. In this regard we have reviewed 44 Courses and 8 programmes from April to now. If you would like help to review OR even to have a conversation at the inception of a new Course or Programme please feel free to reach out to your dedicated Faculty Liaison or TLC 

We are also working on an Assessment Toolkit as a resource for staff in the creation of rubrics that align with best OBE practices.

OBE Health Check 
- In preparation for the QAC 3rd Round Audit, and as a timely exercise to gauge our uptake and adoption of OBATL TLC is employing an external consultant to provide a “Health Check” related to OBE. This consultant will conduct an audit of implementation of Outcome-Based Education across the University. They will seek input from Stakeholders (Deans, Heads of Departments / Units. Programme Coordinators, Academic Staff on the understanding of OBE and implementation. Review a random sampling of Course Syllabus documents and prepare a written report that identifies an OBE Health check for the University in relation to the embedding of OBE across all contexts. (This report would capture the variation of ways OBE has been implemented, benchmarked best practices from other UGC institutions and a comparison on our current practices with recommendations for improvement as appropriate).
