Student Led Individually Created Courses (SLICCs).

LITE GRANT: Evaluating the Impact of SLICCs

Brendan Wylie-Toal and Wayne Chang introduced our work Student Led Independently Created Courses (SLICCs). Developed at the University of Edinburgh, SLICCs promote student ownership of their learning by allowing students to co-create their learning experience, leading to deeper student engagement. (Bovill et al. 2016; Healey et al., 2014). The SLICC framework helps students better identify and articulate their growth and development resulting from the experience, advances their learning and improves their ability to self-assess (Price et al. 2012). As well, it promotes the creation of learning experiences that more closely align with the development of employability skills and graduate attributes preparing students for an increasingly volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous (VUCA) world.
