Warwick Advantage
My focus:
• To create something students would use
• To provide a rationale for the benefits of reflection –to
increase graduate employability
• To encourage student responsibility for their progression
• To develop easy to use resources
• To give students choice in the way they reflect
To answer the question at all stages “What’s in it for me?”
The process
• Consultation with SU Sabbaticals and groups of students
through SSLCs to outline ideas and seek input
• Discussion with academic staff to explore the new
approach
• Inputs from some Societies (OWW, WSAF, Warwick
Entrepreneurs) to look at skills development
