‘Graduateness’ and ‘employability’ in your discipline
Select one programme in your discipline (choose one to which you contribute a module, or part of a module) and examine it with the following questions in mind: (You may find it useful to do this with colleagues.)
What do ‘graduateness’ and ‘employability’ mean in your discipline?
What learning outcomes in your curriculum currently relate to ‘graduate attributes’ and employability? Are there certain skills or attributes which are relevant but implicit in current learning outcomes? Could these be made more explicit? What ones might be adjusted or extended to include this focus? Might additional ones be added?
What learning, teaching and assessment approaches might be adjusted or included to include a focus on graduate attributes and employability?
Next, consider the above questions in relation to the module, or part of the module, that you teach.
