Tues 11 March | 12.00-14.00 | 2.28 Bute Building | register via email@example.com A chance to consider teaching that enables student futures and through the asking of questions of award winning author and educationalist Dr. Colin Jones. Colin is a teaching expert with a gift to entertain, inform, and to simply make you sit up and think about how your teaching practice can be embedded to develop the most enterprising of students.
This event is a forerunner to the Vice Chancellor’s Inspiring Enterprise Week (24-28 March) and will help stimulate thinking about inspiring the next set of academic, political and private sector leaders. By developing a mindset and capability for enterprise and innovation through learning we can add value to research led teaching, as we look to prepare students’ for the challenges of 21 century graduateness.
Colin will introduce how his previous life as successful sportsman and founder of an Australian based business, which eventually left him in debt, led him to recognise how teaching philosophies can enable the next generation. He hopes the two hour session will align thinking to explore the demands of new ways of learning. Colin’s home in Tasmania is a long way away, so grab this opportunity whilst you can. Lunch will be available from midday.

Do you have thought provoking or downright dangerous ideas to change the way Cardiff students have the opportunity to develop their skills?
Is embedding skills such as enterprise and employability within every subject a dangerous idea? Does a University even have a role in skills development? Enterprising, entrepreneurial, employable: which skills do graduates really need? How can I make enterprise or employability relevant to my degree?
This event aims to consider questions such as those set out above and give both staff and students an opportunity to share views. However, to ensure discussions are relevant, the delegates will themselves get involved in setting the topics to be discussed and will be asked to bring along their own dangerous ideas for improving Cardiff University students’ experience and embedding skills development in the curriculum.

Sue Poole of Gower College and Neil Coles of Cardiff University won the National Council for Entrepreneurship Education and Enterprise Educators UK Award in 2011 and 2013 respectively. Both educators have brought about change to student behaviour and their future enterprise endeavours via practical interventions and both have been awarded for their endeavours, so what’s going on in Wales?
