Abstract

Identifying the graduate outcomes is the easy part. The challenge for universities lies in designing the educational programs that will concurrently and explicitly develop generic attributes, as well as discipline-based knowledge. A holistic approach is required. Few universities in Australia have actually developed a process for determining whether their graduates have achieved those attributes to confirm that the institutional rhetoric has practical outcomes. This chapter outlines the role of a graduation portfolio in higher education to meet the growing needs of industry, as well as the operational pros and cons of implementing such a system in higher education.
