Chapter 14: The connected university: connectedness learning across a lifetime
Restricted access

Despite being proposed as a method for implementing networked learning approaches to learning over a lifetime, at present connectedness learning is usually implemented by close-knit teams, and inside one institution. In this chapter we take a step back, considering what might be required to implement it at scale and over a lifetime. The importance of this agenda is highlighted with reference to the changing nature of work; as modern technologies disrupt a wide range of job roles traditionally considered safe it is essential that universities provide portable data that will help our students to demonstrate competencies, claim prior learning and navigate to new opportunities. We use the ongoing work at one Australian institution to guide our perspective, drawing upon the lessons learned in three ongoing projects to make a series of recommendations that we believe will help scale up connectedness learning across an individual’s entire lifetime of learning.
