TeachMeet is about sharing ideas with fellow educators on learning, teaching and assessment techniques.

TeachMeet 2020 - Employability in Practice

Our next TeachMeet in January 2020 will have the theme ‘Employability in Practice’. 

There will be two TeachMeets - one in Chelmsford and one in Cambridge - each including a keynote with an external speaker and short presentations by ARU colleagues. This is a valuable opportunity for colleagues to network and share their practice around a common curriculum theme to support our students to develop graduate capitals.

Employability in practice

The Anglia Ruskin Graduate Capitals model provides a useful framework for thinking about how we can ensure that ARU graduates are able to draw on a range of personal capitals required to achieve successful outcomes and lifelong learning.

We are looking to receive contributions on: how we develop professional knowledge and skills, how active learning promotes social and cultural capital, how authentic assessment and feedback demonstrate student adaptability and resilience, and how a student-centred approach to teaching and learning fosters belonging and professional identity.
