Graduate Attribute Attainment in a Multi-Level Undergraduate Geography Course
Mager, Sarah; Spronken-Smith, Rachel
Journal of Geography in Higher Education, v38 n2 p238-250 2014
We investigated students' perceptions of graduate attributes in a multi-level (second and third year) geography course. A case study with mixed methodology was employed, with data collected through focus groups and a survey. We found that undergraduate geography students can identify the skills, knowledge and attributes that are developed through a multi-level course programme, and that these broadly align with the stated graduate attributes of the discipline. Moreover, there was evidence of progressive development of graduate attributes between second and third year students. The results suggest that peer-to-peer learning can play an important role within this multi-level learning environment.
