Recent shifts in emphasis in the UK’s Higher Education strategy mean there is a greater requirement to link undergraduate study to career developments and the workplace. This is a problematic shift for many academics, and students. This paper explores the use of an online tool in overcoming some of these difficulties. The Effective Lifelong Learning Inventory (ELLI), developed at Bristol, is a tool that creates a seven dimensional framework for individuals to self-report how they engage with learning in all areas of their lives. As such it provides a language and a way of exploring the connections that exist. The paper considers how using this online tool can bring a broader understanding of the way in which an individual learns, any differences in approach that they make in different contexts, and what can be considered core learning strengths. It also considers how this inventory can support an individual in bringing approaches to learning in one context into another.
