AACRAO will host the final showcase for the Comprehensive Learner Records (CLR) project January 26-27. The event will be held online and feature a combination of panel discussions and institutional showcase sessions. The panels will discuss the work over the last five years of the project, as well as the projected future of these new types of student records. The showcase sessions will allow attendees to see CLRs that have been developed by project institutions.

“We are excited to showcase the work of the CLR project from the last five years,” said Dr. Tom Green, who led the work for AACRAO over this period. “It has shown us the power of technology to impact students’ awareness of the education they are receiving and allowed institutions to empower their learners to tell their own story to others in a much more specific, coherent way.”

The CLR project has been a collaborative effort by AACRAO, NASPA: Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education, and the National Association of Learning Outcomes and Assessment (NILOA), supported by two grants from Lumina Foundation. The first phase, 2015-2017, created new models for student records. There were 12 institutional participants, and the innovative models they created spurred the second phase of the project, which occurred from 2017-2020. In the second phase, data integration and degree audit were tackled, and more than 70 institutions worked to develop CLRs.

There is no charge for the showcase event, and it will be held online from 11:00 AM – 4:00 PM Eastern Time both days. Registration is available online but is limited to 300 people total; half of those slots are reserved for institutions who participated in the grant project. Interested in participating?
