3 SWAHS GRADUATE ATTRIBUTES AND PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT PORTFOLIO Background and purpose The professional development portfolio linked to SWAHS graduate attributes is designed to assist post graduate research students to develop and extend knowledge and skills, keep track of these developments and be able to express these in a variety of communication forms both within and outside the University. The portfolio is intended to assist students in their current study and make them more competitive for future employment. It also has potential to assist the advising process and result in a more focused approach to research and research outputs. We anticipate that students who use the portfolio will be able to clearly articulate the knowledge and skills they have developed and built on throughout the PhD process and have greater confidence and authority in presenting themselves to colleagues and employers. The portfolio, initially developed by Dr Catherine Manathunga (Tedi/UQ Graduate School) with the Advanced Wastewater Management Centre (AWMC), is linked to The University of Queensland Research Higher Degree Graduate Attributes. The portfolio has been piloted in the AWMC, the School of Animal Studies and by individual advisors in the health sciences. SWAHS has undertaken to adapt, use and evaluate the portfolio in The portfolio has been modified for use in SWAHS by Cheryl Tilse in consultation with Associate Professor Margaret Shapiro and Dr Catherine Manathunga. Within the School, two focus groups with advisors and one group with post graduate students assisted in developing the SWAHS graduate attributes. The groups also served to canvas views on the purpose and use of the portfolio. Some comments from the focus groups suggest that the portfolio has potential to assist in developing and naming skills and in the supervisory process. Students great idea too many times you are trying to tie skills down and can t great for writing job applications very helpful to know how much you have built on what you already know this is the guts it puts some flesh on it relevant in [country named] to know what kinds of skills developed [international student] Advisors I wish I could have taken this to my supervisor it will help students to sell themselves those intermediate milestones would have helped me employers do not know what a thesis means partializing and naming of skills, knowledges and abilities helps(students) to keep going 3

4 In the focus groups, concerns about the reflective tool and the portfolio were related to its purpose and use. There was general agreement from participants in the focus groups that: 1. The portfolio and the ways of demonstrating achievement of the graduate attributes should not be prescriptive. Students and advisors should recognise that there are many ways of demonstrating the attributes. The reflective tool should be seen as providing a range of examples rather than a prescriptive or exhaustive list. 2. The portfolio is owned by the student and is neither compulsory nor linked to other University processes around reports on progress. The focus in our school will be on career outcomes rather than thesis process and deliverables at the university level. Advisors and students may elect to use the reflections and action plan as a useful summary to inform the annual reporting process but this is not the primary intent of the process. 3. The portfolio should be a working documents used to reflect on and record progress over the research degree. It has potential to be used in supervision and in forward planning as well as in recording achievements and activities. How to use the reflective tool and portfolio The portfolio has two parts. Part A is a reflective tool used twice yearly by students and advisors as a basis of reflection, planning and action. Part B is system for documenting and organising evidence of professional development over the course of the research higher degree. Students will take primary responsibility for keeping Part B of the portfolio up to date. A. The reflective tool The reflective tool is intended to provide opportunity for advisors and students to reflect generally on goals and progress and agree on developmental plans at least twice each year. The tool is intended to enable communication between student and advisor about goals and processes and to learn together about how best to assist the student achieve these goals. This is important addition to the usual focus in supervision on the thesis topic and outcomes. Students will be at different life stages and many will bring to their research higher degree candidature established knowledge and skills. Plans for further development will therefore vary according to students needs and interests. 4

5 Process At the beginning of candidature Advisors introduce the list of graduate attributes, what they mean and how they can be demonstrated. With the advisor, students will identify preexisting knowledge/skills and the knowledge/skills they seek to build on and/or develop. The reflective tool is introduced and the portfolio made available in electronic and print form to enable students to speedily document their existing and developing skills/knowledge. Ongoing six monthly reviews The first reflection on progress and plans should occur six months after the beginning of full time candidature. The reflection and action plan should be completed prior to the confirmation of candidature process. Both the student and the advisor retain a copy of the reflections and action plan. The student takes responsibility for recording achievements in Part B of the portfolio. Subsequent six monthly reflections should begin with the action plan from the previous meeting. Students and/or advisors may wish to use the reflection and action plan at any time in supervision to monitor progress, to identify resources needed and to seek opportunities to extend skills and experiences. The reflections As part of each process, students reflect briefly on their development in relation to each graduate attribute and what they would like to focus on for future development. A brief written reflection is made available to the advisor before the six monthly meeting. The advisor reads through the reflections and makes constructive comments. Student and advisor discuss the comments and together develop an action plan for the next six months. The action plan is reviewed at six monthly intervals or more often if appropriate. The plan is a guide and a mechanism for discussions around the progression of skills and knowledge and resources required. It is developmental rather than set or prescriptive. B. Documenting professional development Students use an electronic or print portfolio to organise and document their development and achievements. The reflective tool and action plan provide the resources for the portfolio. Students are responsible for building their portfolios. It will serve as an ongoing tool for career development and a resource for job applications. 5

23 PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT RESEARCH PORTFOLIO PART B Evidence of Achievement 23

24 B. EVIDENCE OF ACHIEVEMENT When you apply for positions, completion of a thesis is insufficient to reflect the knowledge and skills you have developed over the course of your research higher degree. Employers require evidence of a range of attributes and thus you will need to keep track of and organise evidence of your professional development over at least a three year period. Your professional development achievements and examples of achievements are stored in this section of the portfolio, organised around the themes in the SWAHS graduate attributes. It is available in electronic form and hardcopy so that materials can be organised and stored in a range of ways. There will be some overlap in the evidence. For example, evidence of project management skills can overlap with communication skills. You can decide where best the evidence sits within the portfolio and what suits your particular purposes. The portfolio is your document to develop and use. Evidence may include guest lectures, participation in community meetings, courses undertaken, papers presented or published, teaching evaluations or other feedback, letters of appreciation, reflections on feedback, tutor training undertaken, library courses etc. You could begin your portfolio with a brief curriculum vitae. You might also want to include a listing of the attributes you bring to your higher degree research study. You should also include in your portfolio, copies of each action plan arising from the reflective review of your professional development. These could be useful in framing up responses to selection criteria in applications at some future stage. 24
