For the Summer 2016 issue we have a new look for Forum. This issue of the magazine is linked to the University of York Learning and Teaching Conference which focuses on ‘value added graduates’. With articles on ‘developing skills for industry’, ‘authentic ‘real world’ assessments’, ‘group student research-led projects’ and blogging. As well as, viewpoints from Cecilia Lowe (Head of Learning Enhancement) and Thomas Ron (YUSU Academic Officer) highlighting ways in which we could further enhance the employability of our graduates.
The feature article by Lorraine Dacre Pool (keynote speaker at the conference) discusses the key components of graduate employability development through an exploration of the CareerEDGE Model.
Blog post on the workshops and presentations linked to the articles in this issue of Forum will be made available following the University of York Learning and Teaching Conference 7 July 2016.
