Integrating Employability Skills in Subject Design and Delivery (self-paced)
Online Professional Development Workshop
The development of employability skills is an important graduate outcome and are now included in curriculum as learning outcomes. The design, delivery and assessment of subject curriculum is required to integrate employability skills that are in demand in contemporary workplaces. Employability skills need to give students and future graduates the capacity to deal with change, uncertainty and ambiguity.
This self-paced online workshop will provide you with information, guidance and support to identify the employability skills relevant to your subject. You will learn to use a typology for evaluating your subject curriculum design, delivery and assessment so that you can integrate practical strategies that give students the opportunity to develop, practice and enhance employability skills as they complete your subject (via teaching and assessment practices).
Delivery Format: This is a self-paced online workshop. Participants complete this professional development during the specified dates (3-week period).
On completion of this self-paced workshop, participants should be able to:
- Explore how graduate employability skills development is one significant shift in the role of the university
- Identify the importance of integrating employability skills development in teaching and assessment practice.
- Review your definition of employability skills against industry, government and higher education
- Use the typology for the integration of employability skills in your teaching and assessment practice
