Employer engagement is now regarded as an integral element of the student experience in Higher Education, and the aim of this ‘swap-shop’ is to showcase examples of best practice in using employer engagement to enhance learning and teaching.
The focus of the event is on the demonstrable utilisation of employer engagement in indicative areas such as learning and teaching, module design, work placement, work-based learning, guest speakers, research and consultancy, and assessment.
The aim is to showcase a range of practical examples and therefore sessions will be limited to a maximum of 15 minutes. A provisional programme for the conference is outlined below.
