As part of my work to support the REEDNet project I have been forming up some guidance on how we, in HE, can design modules to support employer engagement initiatives. What started as a quick guide has grown in to a 20 or so page booklet on how assessment, learning outcomes and teaching & learning strategies can be written with respect for the authenticity of learning in the workplace and for the real needs of employers.
The guide is downloadable here:
Whilst the booklet is aimed specifically at supporting designers of employer engagement / work-based learning modules I suspect it may have relevance to module authors more widely.
(improved typeset version from the printers, hopefully to follow shortly on the same link), printed copies available by request.
