Description

The UQ Student Strategy notes that “we must ensure we have the programs in place to develop graduates who can…meet the growing skills demand of new job roles and occupational fields” and that “like our students, we must adapt and find ways to innovate and be the first to identify and seize the opportunities on the horizon”.

The emphasis in this part of the UQ Student Strategy might be labelled as The “Personal-Game” Changing Graduate. How can we better prepare our graduates to work with knowledge that doesn’t yet exist, using work practices that don’t yet exist, in jobs that don’t yet exist

In this session, we’ll look at this challenge from five different emerging perspectives for teaching and learning. After a quick tour of each perspective, participants in the session will select which of these perspectives we will discuss in more depth in order to develop an action agenda with our colleagues.

The Quick Tour part of the session will explore new developments in the following approaches for teaching and learning of Personal-Game Changing Graduates:

  • Preparing Graduates for Work Outside Their Major Courses;

  • Preparing Humanities, Arts & Social Sciences Graduates for Future Careers (without losing our souls);

  • Academic Makerspaces as Game-Changers;

  • Preparing Graduates for Non-Linear Careers (e.g., across corporate, public and non-profit sectors) and

  • Preparing Graduates to Work with Emerging Learning and Knowledge Practices.
