The University of Strathclyde's Vertically Integrated Projects for Sustainable Development (VIP4ESD) programme seeks to embed competency development in the core learning experience, and enable students to articulate their competencies in relation to their professional development. Staff collaborated with Practera, an ed-tech provider that supports experiential learning experiences via its online platform. Measures adopted included Baseline Competency Self-Assessment, biweekly individual reflections, Team 360s and Post-Team 360 Reflections and a Final Reflection and Skills ePortfolio, which are graded. This approach has worked well, although adaptations have been required to support understanding and the quality of evidence and outputs.
