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:
- Doing (constructing identity) – what activities can we use to foster to stimulate and challenge students to develop their professional knowledge, skills and dispositions?
- 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?
- Belonging (valuing identity) – how realistic is it to develop a curriculum in which our students straddle academic and professional worlds?
- Becoming (forming identity) – what happens when our students become professionally-minded? What interventions make a difference?
- 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.
