Abstract or Summary

This interative workshop will explore an Ako Aotearoa Regional Hub funded collaborative research project undertaken by a dozen educational developers from eight Institutes of Technology and Polytechnics (ITPs). The project team sought to identify where and how teachers embed ways of enchancing their learners' skills for employability, lefe-long learning and contributing to society. The research describes a number of case studies arising from classroom observations and interviews of a range of effective teachers, across various institutions, subject areas and NQF levels. The outcome of the research is a toolkit of commonly used practices titled Guidelines for Good-practice in Embedding Employability Skills. These are easy to embed into teaching practice and likely to be effective for learners in diverse contexts.
