Evidencing entrepreneurial capabilities – webinar

Evidencing entrepreneurial capabilities – webinar

The Edge Project: Evidencing entrepreneurial capabilities through innovative WIL

There is increased industry demand for graduates with enterprise capabilities (FYA, 2017).   Innovative entrepreneurial WIL models are supporting students to develop these capabilities giving them an employability edge for an ever-evolving and complex future. These WIL models are also challenging the adequacy of traditional assessment approaches to generate credible evidence of students’ enterprise capabilities.

The ATN Edge Project is addressing such challenges through the co-design of scalable and sustainable WIL models, assessment approaches and online modules. Led by Associate Professor Judith Smith (QUT), the Edge Project team from Curtin University, QUT, RMIT University, University of South Australia, UTS and the Australian Industries Group, has partnered with entrepreneurs, employers, alumni and students in the co-design of these WIL models.

This webinar will provide an opportunity for participants to:

  • Hear directly from academics who have implemented entrepreneurial WIL approaches in course
  • Unpack assessment strategies and challenges around evidencing enterprise capabilities
  • Explore the online modules developed by the Edge Project which are assisting students to develop skills for these WIL experiences.

Associate Professor Judith Smith, Director, Next Gen Learning at Queensland University of Technology.

Service Learning and the Sciences

In person or by livestream!

You are invited to be part of a special event examining what Service Learning and the Sciences looks like in Australia.

Featuring a Keynote presentation by Professor Deborah Boege-Tobin of the University of Alaska, and joined by video link by colleagues from Cornell University in the US, this session involves a transdisciplinary panel of science experts. Researchers from Cornell University, Griffith University and the University of Queensland will delve into discussions on the rapidly expanding area of Service Learning and the Sciences within Australia.

Attendees will have a chance to engage in interactive conversations between specialists in Chemistry and Molecular Biosciences, Marine Biology, Biomedicine, Environmental Science, and Aviation and Engineering, highlighting how Service Learning provides disparate science disciplines with the opportunity to engage in impactful community engagement and research.

Keynote presentation by Professor Deborah Boege-Tobin

Prof Boege-Tobin will talk about the importance and impact of community engagement and share her experience delivering a Service Learning Program at the University of Alaska. In The Semester by the Bay program students not only engage with partners to thoroughly learn the techniques and equipment required for undertaking real scientific research, but also hone their scientific communication skills by presenting their projects to the greater community. Prof Boege-Tobin’s experiential education framework with trained critical examination, the building of skill sets, and reflection will be discussed as a meaningful way to enhance pedagogy.
