Embedding enterprise and employability in a final year taught unit - STEM Conference 2018

This paper describes a unit which combines learning about business use of emerging technologies with enterprise and employability skills in the final year of Business Information Systems and Computing degrees at the University of Portsmouth. The unit’s value is in embedding employability and enterprise alongside academic topics improving student engagement with these vital topics. Using student-centred learning and embedding four-week modules directly taught by the Enterprise and Employability functions in the University we provide the students with the environment to develop their critical and enterprise thinking to improve their life chances on graduating. Feedback on the unit has been encouraging and lessons learned from the previous run are being applied to the current run.
