Share, Adopt, Adapt: Activities in the Curricula – what works and why?

  • Date:
  • Time: 12:00 to 14:00
  • Venue: Research Room 1, Level 13, Edward Boyle Library, University of Leeds

EFFECTIVE learning from employability-related projects in higher education will be showcased at a ‘Share, Adopt, Adapt’ themed workshop organised by the Leeds Institute for Teaching Excellence (LITE).

The event: ‘Activities in the Curricula – what works and why?’ will be delivered by LITE researchers who have been or are currently undertaking ‘Employability-related’ projects.

But LITE is also keen to offer those who have evidenced effective ‘Employability-related’ practices to also share those with attendees.

As well as hearing the findings and recommendations from research conducted by project leaders, there will also be the opportunity to discuss in groups how best to take things forward – with potential to adopt and adapt practices in your own areas and schools.

Professor Tina Overton, Director at LITE, said:

Developing employability skills is essential for the future success of our graduates. Embedding in the curriculum is the only way to ensure every student is exposed to such opportunities. We are fortunate that we have so many colleagues who have brought creativity and innovation to this issue.
