As the first digital repository of its kind, the collection showcases the extraordinary ingenuity and hard work ongoing at universities to equip students and graduates with the skills and abilities to meet the challenges of life in the world of work in our time.
IRU Vice Chancellors’ Fellow Jessica Vanderelie said no longer did we accept a courtesy visit to the careers office post exams pre-graduation — IRU members were working to support student and graduate employability from the moment students stepped on campus or clicked to enrol.
The publically available resource has been developed to encourage broader collaboration across the sector and provides a powerful means through which to prevent institutions ‘reinventing the wheel’.
Within the repository, case studies are presented across 20 high level themes, each providing a detailed summary of the rationale for the innovation, description of the activity and the impact this work has made on students, institutional activities and the community.
Contact details for the staff members involved are also provided to encourage people to reach out across institutional boundaries to develop, share and improve practice.
Griffith features as a Professional Experience case study for its GC2018 Games Internships, “A Program that facilitates students to undertake a for credit internship with the Organising Committee of the 2018 Commonwealth Games.”
