Student Success is a six-month longitudinal project for the Connect Benefit Series 2021-22 focusing embedding employability and access, retention, attainment and progression in higher education. This is the third in a series of four podcasts previewing the findings of a literature review on employability 2016-21, which will be published as part of this theme.
In this episode, Dr Roger Dalrymple, Associate Dean: Student Outcomes at Oxford Brookes University and Dr Andrea Macrae, Principal Lecturer, Stylistics and Student Experience at Oxford Brookes University is joined by Dr Maia Pal, Senior Lecturer in International Relations, Oxford Brookes University to discuss the aspects of the literature review focusing on critiques of employability.
