Summary
The National Graduate Attributes Project (National GAP) explored why Australian universities have on the whole, been unable to achieve the sort of significant systematic changes to student learning experiences, required to achieve their stated aims of fostering graduate attributes. This study explores curriculum renewal strategies to achieve graduate attributes in Australian universities. Graduate attributes are the set of core outcomes a university community agrees all its graduates will develop during their studies, and are usually stated in institutional policy. One of the aims of the project was to develop resources that could be used across universities by individuals and groups working towards embedding and assessing graduate attributes. These include a series of discussion papers exploring issues commonly faced by those working with graduate attributes, a database of policy statements in use in Australian universities, examples of implementation strategies, and National GAP publications and starter references for those interesting in knowing more about graduate attributes implementation.
