We're in Onstream

The pilot phase of the Brookes ID project was announced in the latest issue of Onstream, the staff magazine of Oxford Brookes University:
Brookes ID (Individual Development) is an inclusive co-curricular framework which has been created with students and is a PESE (Programme to enhance the Student Experience) project. It recognises and rewards student engagement and commitment beyond their programme of study and is aligned to the Brookes Guiding Principles. As part of the Brookes ID initiative a new app has been launched which will run this semester as a pilot, leading up to the official launch of Brookes ID expected in September 2017. The Brookes ID app has been developed by the project team (Professor Alison Honour ADSE, Dr Bob Champion PLSE, Lindsay Williams PLSE, Yvonne Aburrow) and the Student Experience team in OBIS, in partnership with students. It monitors the extra and co-curricular activities of students and rewards them with ‘achievements’. Initially the number of activities is limited for the pilot phase. However, once the programme is launched in September there will be a range of activities, some which will be discipline based and more which are University-wide and available to all students.
