Ajeenkya DY Patil University, Pune received ‘Education Technology Innovation Award ‘for the revolutionary “Competency based Transcript system “at Education Technology Summit, New Delhi. The prestigious Educational Technology Summit was organized by Express Computers, the IT Publication of the Indian Express Group on March 27, 2019.
The event acknowledged the achievements of various education institutions, who have used the power of technology to improve the education delivery process and improved the quality of education in their respective institutions.
ADYPU has pioneered a unique competency-based transcript combined with an electronic portfolio which documents the journey of a student right from the first year to graduation.
Besides the traditional transcript with a listing of courses attended by a student along with the grades, the university will issue a competency transcript for each semester, which will document the skills attained by a student. This will be supported by a link to an electronic portfolio of a student which would contain the evidences of the work done by the student and the faculty assessment remarks on the same. This link is shared with companies before the recruitment drives, to help them make informed hiring decisions. This also gives the student an informed perspective, guiding them to make sound career decisions.
