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”.

According to ITaLI Visiting Fellow, Dr Thomas Carey, the emphasis in this part of the Student Strategy might be labelled as The “Personal-Game” Changing Graduate. Dr Carey will explore the challenge from ‘Five Teaching and Learning Perspectives on The Personal-Game Changing Graduate’ in a public seminar on Monday 23 October, 10am-12pm. You are invited to register to attend here.

Participants 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.

I invite you to attend this seminar to find out how you can contribute to the development of an action agenda which assists students to become personal game-changing graduates.
