SOAR stands for Self, Opportunity, Aspirations and Results. It is a comprehensive tool to help teachers operationalise and contextualize the ideals of PDP. Different parts of the tool have the potential to promote personal enquiry, the discovery or re-discovery of self and the building of identity through participation and active engagement with opportunities for learning within and outside the curriculum (so much useful learning gained from experience outside the formal curriculum is ignored in higher education). The learning processes that the tool supports helps learners to develop realistic aspirations and intentions that can motivate and help them achieve the results they desireand help grow confidence in their own ability to meet future challenges.
