Dawn Bennett from Curtin University and Lorna Froud from the University of Reading co-chaired the expert stream in employability at the national HERDSA in Sydney. Colleagues worked together for an hour or two every day, reporting to a plenary session on Friday, June 30th.
The group targeted four key areas:
1. The language of employability;
2. Rewriting the metrics on graduate outcomes;
3. Distilling the key elements of good practice; and
4. Radical thinking for effective change.

Over the coming months, the group members plan to create a white paper in which they bring together the key themes.
