Transition Model Toolkit Launch
June 4, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:15 pmFree
It is widely acknowledged that the employability of undergraduates is a contemporary focus and measure for the higher education sector. Sheffield Hallam have the ambition to become the world’s leading applied university and to develop our students for their future success. Therefore, this theoretically informed but pragmatic approach has been developed to give new Sheffield Hallam learners an authentic context to a topic from their subject discipline, supplemented with a selection of authentic tasks to apply this knowledge while drawing on their own experiences with these activities mirroring approaches of applied learning (Beard 2010; Herrington et al, 2014; Kolb, 1984). Finally, the link to professional practice is provided through video interviews of professionals and current sandwich placement students, who put the topic into a real-world context. This approach is delivered via an on-line pre arrival Blackboard site which is supported by a comprehensive on-line toolkit that is aimed to support course teams through the practical steps of building their own discipline-specific site.
The virtual session will focus on the pedagogy behind the model, a demonstration of the pre–arrival sites in practice and a chance for you to discuss how the site could be Implemented within your discipline area.
