Employability in the curriculum 


Professor Brian Chalkley presents ‘Employability in the curriculum’ on Thursday 13 July from 12pm to 1pm.

Professor Chalkley’s presentation provides some insights into how universities and colleges in the UK are seeking to embed employability in the curriculum. A key question explored will be what a really effective employability curriculum would look like and how far what we currently offer matches up to this model.

The session will include an opportunity for discussion about what Australia and the UK might learn from each other’s experience in terms of embedding employability in the student learning experience.

Professor Chalkley is director of the UK Higher Education Academy Subject Centre for Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences (GEES) which is based at the University of Plymouth. He is a National Teaching Fellow and a member of the Council and Education Committee of the Royal Geographical Society.

Brian has an extensive record of publications on learning and teaching and is a member of the editorial board of the Journal of Geography in Higher Education. He has particular interests in the promotion of graduate employability.

This presentation takes place in TLDG meeting room 24.47, Casuarina Campus. Lunch will be provided.
