Teaching and Learning Conference 2019: Making the links between the dissertation process and employability: Harnessing the voice of alumni

This presentation examines the importance of embedding employability within a dissertation module and how to make this more transparent to students. While the dissertation encapsulates key employability skills (e.g. project management critical reflection) it can be perceived as an academic hurdle to be jumped. This presentation reports on research conducted with former students outlining insights from their retrospective experience of doing a dissertation before going on to illustrate how this voice can be utilised to enhance the learning support and engagement of current students through the creation of a ‘talking heads’ video.
