Introducing EmployaGility – sharing ideas for engaging multiple stakeholders in the teaching, learning, employment journey

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOtherpeer-review

Abstract

Summary:
Getting a job at the end of a course of study is typically used as a key HE employability performance indicator, yet this doesn’t cater for evaluating the support of start-up activity or tracking of career changes over the life-long trajectory of exiting students, as a measure of longer term benefits of a university experience. In this PDW, BAM delegates will be introduced to the concept of “employaGility” and encouraged to share their experiences
of multiple stakeholder engaged learning methods and extracurricular
activities. Based on theoretical and empirical evidence, ‘employaGility’ challenges whether academic and support staff involved in employability and enterprise related learning, teaching and support services (e.g. careers and placement offices; incubator, accelerator and start-up hubs) are fulfilling the needs of all higher education stakeholders.
This workshop intends for participants to reflect on learning, teaching and service provision related to enhancing student employability and enterprise development, with a particular focus on stimulating ‘agile’ competencies and entrepreneurial behaviour outcomes.
