Advance HE will publish a literature review on employability, 2016-21, in September 2021 which aims to identify specific impact and evidence in relation to embedding employability within higher education, predominantly since the most recent Advance HE literature review from 2016.
Over the spring and summer of 2021 a research team from Oxford Brookes University undertook a systematic literature review of the extensive material on higher education employability over the last five years. Adopting an explicitly international and multi-disciplinary focus, the team engaged with a wide range of literature across the broad field of employability learning.
This short podcast series offers a preview of some of the dominant themes emerging from the review including measuring and measures of employability, the embedding of employability learning in the curriculum, conceptions and critiques of employability and educational inequalities.
In this first podcast, Dr Andrea Macrae, Principal Lecturer, Stylistics and Student Experience at Oxford Brookes University is joined by Dr Roger Dalrymple, Associate Dean: Student Outcomes at Oxford Brookes University to discuss the measurement of different employability interventions and employability development.
