Research output: Published contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

This pilot HEA/UKCISA 'Connections' project undertaken primarily from mid-February to June 2012 draws by interview upon the experiences of technology students and their host employers on work placement abroad, and the perspectives of other surveyed students and employers, to contribute to the development of transnational/international WBL in the curriculum. It extends the 'transnational employability' theme of related University and Leonardo Mobility funded collaborative projects involving the Technology School, 'Bildungszentrum fuer Informationverarbeiteende Berufe' - translated as the 'Educational Centre for Information Processing Professions' and EISC Ltd since September 2010. Outcomes from the project include a life-cycle model for supporting transnational work placement in the curriculum, a first attempt to attract students to work placement using social media, a brief analysis of perspectives of the knowledge, skills and attitudes required to work globally with reference to a published 'graduate attributes' framework, example internationalised learning activities related to graduate employability skills development.
