Abstract

Recent surveys indicate that employers are looking for new graduates with soft skills more than purely academic achievements. There have been discussions on the importance of how participating in extracurricular activities and achievements contribute to the future success of a graduate in terms of personal development and outcome-based learning. However, current university transcripts fall flat in showing attributes and learning outcomes associated to extracurricular activities and achievements. In this paper, we identify the design issues against the personal development cycle and review a practical implementation in a university of Hong Kong. Potential benefits to institutions and learners in enhancing the employability, limitations and rooms for improvement are discussed.
