The Universal Learner Record: More than a Life Transcript

Wednesday, October 16 | 10:45AM–11:30AM CT | W185d, Level 1
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Moderated Discussion
This conversational presentation will describe the universal learner record (ULR) representing retrospective (what a student has achieved) and prospective (what a student may be able to achieve) college experiences. We will demonstrate computable ULRs based on blockchains coupled to decentralized storage to show high school and college learner experiences they control.

Outcomes: Challenge and discuss the proposed ULR and its utility as a life-long learner record * Explore the ULR's strengths and weaknesses * Discuss types of student experiences at your institution that are worth permanently capturing
