Embedding employability into the curriculum - a university wide approach to eportfolios

Presenter(s):

Heather Pate, Senior Learning Designer, Edith Cowan University
Dr Katrina Strampel, Manager, Teaching Support & Senior Lecturer in CLT

ECU defines employability as having the skills, knowledge personal attributes, and self-awareness that make securing, and being successful in fulfilling, employment more likely.  Through an integrated learning experience, the JIGSAW approach aims to improve employability outcomes by enhancing students’ ability to understand, demonstrate, take responsibility for, and articulate their learning, thus improving their written applications for employment, their verbal interviews, and their continuing professional development.
 
In this presentation, Heather will outline how this approach is being implemented with seven pilot courses across the university. Using PebblePad workbooks, courses provide students with scaffolded opportunities to recognise and articulate their knowledge, skills and achievements, and to collect evidence to support these. Students use the stories and evidence gathered to create portfolios, documenting their learning journey and preparing them for employment.
