Innovative Programs for Enhancing Graduate Readiness
Venue: Rydges, Melbourne
|Event Date/Time: Jul 18, 2012|
Australiaâ€™s graduates are entering an even more competitive job market in the wake of the global financial crisis as well as increasing and dynamic workplace demands.
Todayâ€™s employable graduate has both the functional and soft-skills that are expected of a graduate to flourish in a global, dynamic workplace. With increasing industrial and societal pressures to create the â€˜super graduateâ€™, universities are required to implement and deliver innovative programs that provide learning and reflective opportunities within the curriculum and beyond.
These initiatives are not without their challenges. With a traditionally content â€“ driven curriculum, limited resources and restricted timeframes, institutions are expected to enhance the learning experiences of students through innovative and collaborative initiatives.
This conference will encourage engagement and best practice for producing work ready graduates for all practitioners, employers and academia. Hear from experts about ground-breaking initiatives institutions are undertaking to tackle graduate employability for domestic and overseas job markets.
