9:50 AM CASE STUDY: Evolving the Definition of Employability and Providing Skills for a Global Future with Innovative Work Integrated Learning Initiatives

This RMIT Work Integrated Learning (WIL) Initiative is an innovative approach to enhancing students' professional skills while on placement through provision of coached and scaffolded embedded learning activities. As an expert in this area, Professor Margaret Jollands explores the project, current employability models and why work experience is not the panacea for all.

  • Exploring current and future graduate skills gap
  • Examining student perspectives and how institutions can enhance work placement quality
  • What can we do to help staff develop new skills needed to bring employability into the curriculum
