The ASSIST project is a multi-disciplinary awards scheme which officially launched in September 2015 in the University of Limerick. ASSIST places an emphasis on exploring the nature of the evidence produced by students in the attainment of the University of Limerick’s Graduate Attributes, the triangulation of this evidence in relation to its ecological validity, and more specifically to its digital accreditation. The ASSIST project invites participating students to submit evidence aligning with the University of Limerick’s Graduate Attributes for the opportunity to attain a digital badge as an indicator of relevant soft skill attainment.
