Having worked for many years on projects involving HE, FE and employers in partnership working, I was delighted to become part of a team to investigate the role of technology in developing student employability skills. The team includes Lisa Gray from Jisc and Geoff Rebbeck, who will both introduce themselves in separate posts.
Over the next few months you may well find us contacting you as we research what is going on in both the HE and FE sectors. We are looking for good practices, ideas, challenges and opportunities in this area. We are also aiming to develop a series of case studies and looking to identify how Jisc can best support each sector. Meanwhile, if you think you can help us, please do get in contact either by commenting on this post or e-mailing me – firstname.lastname@example.org.
Geoff, Lisa and myself will use this blog to give updates on how we are progressing with the project and we’ll share our thoughts and ideas as we go along – hopefully, this may prompt some feedback.
You can join us at the Jisc Digital Festival on 9 March 2015, where we will be running a workshop to present our interim findings, showcase examples and provide opportunities for you to engage with us in this exciting area of technology for employability.
