Last chance to book for TeachMeet: Employability in Practice

Published: 17 January 2020 at 12:25

This year’s TeachMeets - Tuesday in Chelmsford and Wednesday in Cambridge (12:00-2:30pm) - will focus on how best to prepare our students for the workplace and lifelong learning in a changing world. Once again, we're looking forward to welcoming an inspiring line-up of external keynotes and ARU colleagues. They’ll share their experiences, outcomes and practical tips on integrating ‘employability’ into the curriculum.

In Chelmsford, our guest keynote Aranee Manoharan, will tell us about Kingston University's approach to ‘Delivering an inclusive curriculum that enables all students to achieve their aspirations.’ In Cambridge, Prof Pat Tissington, University of Warwick, will discuss ‘“Careers has no place in the curriculum” and other myths’.

ARU colleagues, including our Academic Leads for Employability, will share innovative practices and insights gained from developing students' graduate capitals, co-created curriculums, portfolios for professional development, Live Briefs, and explore big questions and opportunities related to employability in practice. There’ll also be time to network and develop ideas over a light lunch.

“This is always a popular annual event led by Anglia Learning & Teaching and this year is no exception due to the very timely theme of ‘employability in practice’. It’s so important that we prepare our students with the Graduate Capitals needed for their successful progression,” says Andrew Middleton, Anglia Learning & Teaching. 

“Each of the short presentations evidences just how much exemplary practice is happening across our University which can be openly shared and embedded into our our thinking, teaching and curricula.” 

Everyone involved in teaching or learning and teaching support is invited to take a look at the programme for each lunchtime event and to book your place.
