Future Work, Future Graduates: Forging the Link
|Location:||Sir Ian Wood Building, Robert Gordon University|
RGU has a longstanding commitment to, and track record of success in preparing our graduates for the workplace.
However, the world of work is changing at an unprecedented rate. With factors such as globalisation, technological progress, and demographic change transforming the nature of work and the knowledge, skills and competencies required of our graduates, we must ensure that the education we offer our students continues to give them the best possible preparation for the future world of work.
This year’s Learning and Teaching Conference will provide a forum for a university-wide conversation around the future of work, its implications for the future of learning at RGU, and how graduate-level employability may best be supported.
The conference will create a forum for colleagues to disseminate their work in the area of employability to a wider audience, enabling the sharing of effective practice across disciplines. The programme will include keynote addresses by David D'Souza (Head of Engagement, CIPD) and Professor Gilly Salmon (University of Liverpool), along with presentations and posters. Complementing the individual presentations that have been a cornerstone of the conference to date, each School will showcase innovative practice in their area related to the conference theme.
Abstract submissions are now open and will close on Monday 5 March.
