Student satisfaction, employability and even learning outcomes are all on the government agenda but for most faculty these are new areas outside of their comfort zones and knowledge. This workshop assumes that Faculty are feeling some responsibility for the employability of their students and will give a brief outline of the current research, experience and resources.

Lawton’s central message is that Faculty can easily enhance the employability of their students. She invites all Faculty to drop by and find out how.
