Improving employability

Improving Employability

  • What the students say:

  • I can reflect more in my own approach to teaching…This has enabled me to challenge views from management which may differ from my own, whereas before, sometimes I went along thinking I had to do things because that’s the way they were done

Improving Employability

  • What the students say (contd.):

  • Reflecting on my practice has become a significant part of my role as a practitioner since I began my FD and I am much more aware of the importance of developing my own skills and knowledge when working with children

Improving Employability

  • What the students say (contd.):

  • By encouraging the staff with whom I work to reflect on their practice, we are able to discuss our ideas and improve the outcomes for future sessions


What have we learnt

What have we learnt?

That one size does not fit all and that blending should be contextual and situational;

That peer learning, support and mentoring is key for staff and students;

That blending is an ongoing reflective and reflexive activity best seen as a dialogue;

That this is fun!


Conclusion

Qualitative data shows that students feel more valued and knowledgeable in their workplace

They are more willing to challenge existing practices

They demonstrate improved confidence and improved communication skills

They undertake more complex roles in their settings


Conclusion1

Conclusion

How was this achieved?:

Engaging students in online discussion from the start promoted their skills of reflection

Feedback from peers and from tutors encouraged this reflection

Guidance in online tasks supported the development of higher order thinking skills

Linking theory to practice emerged from blending modules and helped students to make connections in their learning
