The Faculty Employability Team consult and advise academics in embedding employability into their curriculum through activities such as authentic learning.
The Team have been busy working with academic colleagues developing new embedding employability and engaged learning case studies. There are three new videos:
- In Classics and Ancient History the Applied Classics unit embeds employability through getting students to articulate their skills through producing real world assessment pieces.
- As part of the MSc Management (Marketing) students can participate in an applied extended project with an industry partner as an alternative to a dissertation.
- International Development students can take the optional units Managing and Evaluating Development (PGT) as well as NGO Development and Practice (UG) to work with Non-Governmental Organisations to develop a business plan.
There are also two new written case studies from the school of Accounting and Finance:
- Financial Reporting and Analysis is an example of how a guest lecturer can provide an insight on careers options as well as a challenge using real world data.
- Banking uses alternative assessment methods to surface skills.
“This is a useful resource for colleagues to get practical tips on how they can bring authentic learning into their pedagogy.“
Stuart Johnson, Director of Careers and Skills
