Abstract
Background
Universities across the world have considered which attributes were important to their graduates and examined the extent that programs included experiences and opportunities conducive to exposure to and development of the desired attributes.
Methodology
An action research cycle of three phases focused on review, development and implementation of statements of curriculum intent and outcomes.
Results
The iterative processes of evaluation and curriculum renewal led to agreement that graduates from university degrees should exit with attributes that distinguish their higher education experience.
Conclusion
Consultative processes led to identification of Graduate Attributes (GAs) Domains unique to the University. Implementation of the GAs with a selection of programs demonstrated practicality and effectiveness.
Keywords: Graduate Attributes, Action Research, Curriculum Mapping
