CREATEC Weekly Seminar Series - Professor Dawn Bennett

Friday, 06 April 2018


Presenter: Professor Dawn Bennett

Title: Helping students create their futures: EmployABILITY thinking without more content!

Biography: Dawn Bennett is John Curtin Distinguished Professor of Higher Education and Director of the EmployABILITY and Creative Workforce Initiatives with Curtin University, Australia. Her research focusses on the development of employability within higher education. A National Senior Australian Learning and Teaching Fellow and Principal Fellow of the Higher Education Academy in the UK, Dawn is a member of several editorial boards and she is the senior editor of the Routledge-ISME book series. Dawn has served on the boards of ISME and Music Australia and the ISME Commission for Education of the Professional Musician. Publications appear at Researchgate.

Abstract: With a focus on CREATEC disciplines, this workshop shares how employABILITY thinking can work in existing classes. Embedding employABILITY thinking means doing things differently rather than doing more: engaging students as partners and using metacognition as the driver of motivation. The workshop also explores the potential for educational research and scholarship within the Initiative’s activities.
