Living & Learning in the Present and Future

Lorna Rosemary Sibbett

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOther


This workshop will explore the mechanisms by which employability-related practices can enhance students’ current development as independent self-authoring learners and their future development as useful members of society. Students and staff from the University of St Andrews will present a synopsis of successful local initiatives, which have embedded employability within the curriculum and developed relationships between co-curricular learning and formal study. Participants will engage in round-table discussions, sharing their experiences, opinions and strategies on: accreditation/recognition of co-curricular learning; students as partners in curricular reform for employability enhancement; how employability is embedded within departmental curricula; and institutional support (or lack thereof) for skills-based learning.
