If we want a university and college education to focus on its purpose--learning--then we need to reframe the way we highlight outcomes. Across the nation and abroad, educational leaders have begun the process of helping students define the value and purpose of "their" degrees. Specifically, institutions should help students navigate and construct their unique experience and provide innovative ways to help students both reflect on and articulate the range of experiences, knowledge, and competencies that constitute their education. This article highlights the University of California San Diego's "Engaged Learning Tools" as a model that has provided an integrated and expansive way to document the student experience. "Engaged Learning Tools" is a suite of tools that includes an enhanced electronic transcript, Co-Curricular Record, electronic portfolio, and searchable portal of research and applied learning experiences.
