Total Immersion – Enterprise & Employability Module

A few months ago we mentioned the a brand new module coming to you from the Enterprise Team.

Total Immersion will be beginning this semester, with the first session taking place from the 29th September for a duration of 12 weeks. The module is aimed at developing and enhancing your enterprising traits and overall employability skills; in building on those core and soft skills every employer will be looking for.

The module itself is a 10 credit standalone module and one that is open to 1st and 2nd year students on certain degree programmes.  If you are interested in finding out more and enrolling, please take a look at the information below and get in touch with Jay Begum at BegumJ1@cardiff.ac.uk or just pop into our office at the Student Union.  

We will be running this module again in the spring semester and there will be more information to follow in due course.

NOTE:  List of eligible programmes can be found below.  This module only has 20 spaces so if you are interested, we recommend you enrol soon as it will be operating on a first come first serve basis.

Enterprise and Innovation in the Curriculum Forum – 20th May 2013

An academic discussion group

Monday 20th May 2013; Glamorgan Building 0.85

Academic members of staff are actively encouraged to attend the second forum of its kind to share practice in the area of enterprise and innovation in the curriculum.  An outline of the agenda is detailed below, but will include research/policy drivers, feedback from a related Russell Group forum and a case example from the School of Pharmacy & Pharmaceutical Sciences.

It is recognised that colleagues from across the University are advancing the agenda of applying student learning so that graduates become innovative critical thinkers who are able to solve problems and make real decisions.  During February 2013 a meeting for academics with an interest in enterprise and innovation in the curriculum was hosted by Cardiff University Enterprise.  During the meeting a consensus was reached to establish an informal peer to peer networking group to share and build on practice.  The aim is to bring together academics from a diverse range of disciplines to exchange knowledge, collaborate and explore new opportunities that can be advanced through enterprise education.  It is hoped that the active participants from the first session will again be able to attend, with the addition of new staff members, particularly early career academics and those with a teaching and learning portfolio.
