Fostering learner,program and institutional connectedness to boost graduate employability

 
Workshop: 1 August 2018
 
In this workshop, participants will explore the use of the connectedness toolkit for their own programs and broader higher education contexts.  Using the toolkit resources, you will engage in a reflective self-assessment of your graduate employment program or institutional area to identify areas of existing strength and future opportunity for connectedness capability development.  This self-assessment forms the basis for a strategic action planning process to foster the connectedness capabilities of your students, enhance pedagogic approaches, and cultivate enabling strategies that will develop and strengthen connections between your institutional area and program and its key partners that ultimately leads to improving graduate employability.
