The Student-Led, Individually-Created Courses (SLICCs) reflective experiential learning and assessment framework and portfolio-based approach was established at the University of Edinburgh by Professor Ian Pirie, Dr Gavin McCabe, and Professor Simon Riley. It continues to be developed and enhanced by a team led by Simon and Gavin, and has been adapted, with permission, to the University of Waterloo’s context.
