Students working in a groupCardiff University Learning and Teaching Conference

It is our strategic aim to embed skills development within and across the curriculum so that students at all levels appreciate the skills needed for employability.  There are a broad range of learning literacies and skills that we are seeking to develop in our students – academic, professional, digital and information literacies; entrepreneurial and social enterprise skills; reflection and personal development planning; ensuring we are educating global citizens.  Good curriculum and assessment design, including appropriate use of technology within the curriculum, is needed to enable our students to not only develop a deep understanding of the subject, but also to develop skills that will prepare them for their future employment.

This one-day conference will provide the opportunity for staff from across the University to meet and share their experiences in this area. There will be stalls throughout the day in the foyer of the Sir Martin Evans Building, highlighting the important work of the Professional Services in helping develop the skills of our students, including the Digidol Project on developing digital literacy. We will be live tweeting the event on the hashtag: #CUskills.
