Outcomes based training and assessment supports the development and judgement of the ability of students to demonstrate a defined set of skills and attributes. A programmatic approach to outcomes-based learning and assessment describes a program of learning and assessment methods, over the duration of a course, that contribute to the development and attainment of skills and attributes. This session will focus applying a programmatic approach to assessment to ensure graduate competence.

FW: Enhancing the employability of bioscience students

 

The Society for Experimental Biology, Physiological Society and British Ecological Society are organising a one-day employability information day on 12th September in London for those who support and advise students in the biosciences. The event features speakers working in different bioscience career sectors and aims to help university staff to find out more about how they can enhance the employability of their bioscience students. For example, we will provide information on the role of learned societies in assisting students with their careers, including offering placements, internships and employment opportunities. There will be plenty of scope for discussion and questions during the day, as well as resources to take away.

 

For more information and to register for the event go to: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/enhancing-the-employability-of-bioscience-students-tickets-36539346168 or please pass the information on to teaching colleagues or career staff who you think would like to attend.

 

With best wishes.
