Evolving teaching & learning to meet the employability challenge
The responsibility for graduate employability has made a distinct inroad from careers to academia. As a core competitive issue and a continuing serious challenge for higher education, employability is now an important element within the teaching and learning agenda.
How can employability be effectively embedded into course curriculum?
It is essential we learn from industry regarding their perspectives on work readiness and the skills they desire from our future graduates and then translate that knowledge into authentic learning experiences. With many different employability models being used, this conference will provide an excellent opportunity to hear the latest strategies and thinking around this key issue.
Guest speakers will demonstrate how to:
- Define the graduate skill set for the future workforce
- Ensure teaching & learning evolves to produce creative and agile graduates
- Embed employability skills into curriculum and assessment
- Build effective relationships with industry
- Manage the employability challenge for international students
- Implement effective university-wide employability models
