The Effective Lifelong Learning Inventory (ELLI) was created in 2004 by Deakin-Crick and Broadfoot et al. It offers a self-reported snapshot on how the learner’s current learning maps onto a set of seven dimensions of learning power:

  • Changing and learning
  • Critical curiosity
  • Meaning making
  • Resilience
  • Creativity
  • Learning relationships
  • Strategic awareness

These dimensions are not fixed, but can be worked on and developed by learners, often with the support of a mentor. ELLI can therefore be considered as a form of assessment designed to promote reflection on learning.

In Cloudworks, all the Research Skills required by PhD students - as defined by the UK Research Councils - have been tagged with one or more of these dimensions of learning power.
