Employability in practice webinar: Transitions and connections - fostering a sense of becoming

  • Date: 17 December 2019
  • Time: 13:00 pm
  • Venue: Online

Join Andrew Middleton and Academic Leads for Employability to discuss fostering a sense of becoming and hear ten-tips for developing a course-wide employability culture. 

Participate in a discussion around five key questions based on the D3BC framework and how it relates 'identity' to employability:

  1. Doing (constructing identity) – what activities can we use to foster to stimulate and challenge students to develop their professional knowledge, skills and dispositions?
  2. Being (embodying identity) – how can we create a sense of excitement and curiosity for our students and support them to be professional, creative, adaptable and resilient, responsible, and reflective?
  3. Belonging (valuing identity) – how realistic is it to develop a curriculum in which our students straddle academic and professional worlds?
  4. Becoming (forming identity) – what happens when our students become professionally-minded? What interventions make a difference?
  5. Connecting (validating/confirming identity) – what types of connections can we make (creative, cognitive or social) to develop social and cultural capital?

Take-away ‘tips’ and practical things you can do to incorporate employability into your teaching practice.
