STEM conference 2019: Integrating personal and professional skills development into the core Engineering curriculum for distance learning students

The Engineering programme team at The Open University has long experience of supporting students in personal development planning (PDP) and professional skills development. However an opportunity to improve student engagement and feedback was recognised following a move from module to qualification focus. Curriculum components were redesigned to further integrate PDP skills throughout core Engineering modules and qualifications providing students with greater relevance of professional practice in their chosen field of study. We outline our approach to PDP and professional skills teaching that provides students with more opportunities for continuous improvement and to enhance their academic and employability skills.
