Full programmes announced for TeachMeet 2020

Published: 8 January 2020 at 09:22

This year’s TeachMeet theme is Employability in Practice. Guest keynotes and colleagues from across ARU will share their insights and experiences of incorporating ‘employability’ into their teaching practice, how to do it, and the outcomes of developing students’ graduate capitals and key skills to enable all students to realise their full potential.

On Tuesday 21 January, keynote, Aranee Manoharan from Kingston University, will open the Chelmsford event by discussing their experience of: “Delivering an inclusive curriculum that enables all students to achieve their aspirations.” The following day in Cambridge (Wednesday 22 January), our guest speaker, Prof Pat Tissington from University of Warwick, will explore: ‘“Careers has no place in the curriculum’ and other myths.”

Our Academic Leads for Employability and colleagues from faculties and professional services will give short presentations and demonstrations.  These examples of best practice will provide participants with ideas and the confidence to successfully integrate ‘employability’ into their own curriculum.

“We have an exemplary line-up of keynotes and colleagues sharing experience and thinking on integrating employability in practice. Together, we will discuss the different ways that teaching across ARU is engaging our students in developing their employability – from assessment design, to the use of Live Briefs and portfolios for professional development,” says Andrew Middleton, Anglia Learning & Teaching. “Join us to share your own approaches and hear about how others are developing their students’ graduate capitals in response to the Anglia Ruskin Employability Strategy 2018-2023.”
