Dawn Bennett – Developing employABILITY roadshow

Event Details
6 March 2018 - 24 April 2018

Professor Dawn Bennett will be conducting a series of Higher Education Research and Development Society of Australasia (HERDSA) workshops related to her Senior National Fellowship with the former Office for Learning and Teaching (OLT). The Fellowship positioned employability development as the cognitive and social development of students as capable and informed individuals, professionals and social citizens. The HERDSA workshops will introduce participants to resources and strategies with which to embed employABILITY within existing courses.

Participants will gain:

  • Access to the online self-assessment profile tool for students;
  • Resources, ready to embed into an LMS or unit outline;
  • Career stories to share with students; and
  • Examples of the SoTL and educational research that flow from students’ responses and engagement.

Each session comprises a two-hour workshop followed by a one-hour drop-in session. Please visit or join the Community of Practive (CoP) at
