For those of you attending Jisc’s DigiFest 2016, we would like to invite you to come along to our workshop “Working in Partnership to develop students’ employability”. We’ll be exploring the twin themes of developing student employability and partnership working between students, staff and employers.
James will describe how Reading College (part of Activate Learning) is working with learners to develop their employability and digital skills – more info about their work is available in two Jisc case studies: Technology: a fundamental aspect of teaching,learning and assessment and Reading College: Aligning technology with the world of work,
We’ll also be showcasing two HE and two FE case studies:
- University of Edinburgh – Developing 21st century career-ready graduates
- University of Southampton – Mission Employable
- S&B Autos Automotive Academy, Bristol: Blended learning at distance
- South West College, Northern Ireland: InnoTech Centre – Forging links between education and industry
There will also be an opportunity to find out about the extensive Jisc resources that support the workshop’s twin themes, including:
- Our recently published report “Technology for Employability” which includes 20 case studies across the HE/FE/skills sectors.
- Jisc/NUS benchmarking the student digital experience tool
- An online guide Enhancing the student digital experience: a strategic approach
- A guide to developing successful student-staff partnerships
You can find details of our workshop in the programme – we’re on between 14.45 and 15.45 in Hall 5 on Day 2 (3 March).
We hope to see you there and if you haven’t registered for DigiFest 2016, I believe there are still places left.
