VISION
INSPIRING LEARNING
The HWU Graduate will be the focal and end point of the Learning and Teaching Strategy 2018-2025, and the Vision - Inspiring Learning – is designed to emphasise the criticality of developing the learning capabilities of students through the curriculum, teaching and assessment.
INSPIRING LEARNING
The institutional aspirations for the HWU Graduate will be based around the current Four HWU Graduate Attributes, which are still relevant for the strategic direction of the University in learning and teaching over the next seven years and still reflective of the ethos and values of Heriot-Watt. The four HWU Graduate Attributes will remain as:
SPECIALIST CREATIVE
The four Attributes aim to make the HWU graduate readily identifiable and distinctive. Each of the four Attributes will be regarded as equal and integral to developing the HWU Graduate, and as a collective: it is the particular combination of these four qualities, rather than each on its own, which defines the HWU graduate.
The textual descriptions accompanying each Attribute will
be revised to reflect the University’s approaches to learning to learn and to positive education as distinctive aspects of the HWU learning experience, and
to accommodate qualities and skills such as resilience, efficient and effective learning, which HWU graduates will
PROFESSIONAL GLOBAL
acquire during their period of study at HWU and develop during their professional life.
The current strapline professionally educated, globally employable will be reviewed as an effective summary of the four Attributes and of the distinctive qualities of the HWU Graduate.
The development of the Four HWU Graduate Attributes will be embedded
in all undergraduate and postgraduate taught programmes, and all students will have the opportunity to develop the Attributes. Employers will recognise
that HWU graduates exemplify the skills and qualities which characterise the Graduate Attributes and which the HWU learning experience aims to develop.
