Employability in the Curriculum: Working Together for Success, Breaking Down Walls of Resistance

Date(s) Wednesday 6 July 2011
Venue University of Central Lancashire (UCLan)
Organised by ESCalate
In partnership with UCLAN logo

Focus of Workshop:

The ESCalate project ‘Employability  in the Curriculum’ is completing in summer 2011, and is offering this workshop to share outcomes and findings on research undertaken into  employability in the curriculum in modules offered within the School of Education and Social Science. It will specifically address how one module was used as a ‘case study’ to explore how dialogue could be used within the classroom to encourage teacher / student engagement at an early stage of the student experience. This research has served as a valuable tool’ for the researchers and students involved in the process and has ensured a ‘positive’ student experience.

Who should attend?

This workshop is aimed at teacher educators, researchers and students. The workshop will offer delegates the opportunity to discuss their research  and teaching in the field of employability, to engage in narrative and teaching dialogue with other delegates in relation to employability and the curriculum . The workshop will offer opportunities for networking, collaboration and partnership work. This is an opportunity to be a part of a future change process in teaching and learning. Colleagues are invited to explore the value of this research for themselves and share ideas, best practice and take the opportunity to connect in a reflective and engaging dialogue in a productive environment.
