This week, employABILITY thinking is focusing on Developing a socially engaged curriculum. This expert guide comes from Dr Catherine Grant at the Queensland Conservatorium, Griffith University. Cathy explains:
Learning discipline-based knowledge and skills is an essential part of any university education, and educators and their institutions are often highly effective at teaching them. However, unless educators also enable students to connect their disciplinary knowledge and skills with the world around them, students can be left unsure about the relevance of their learning to their own lives and the lives of others.
The guide for educators provides top tips, things to remember, a list of resources and links for further reading.
