Our Director of Education, Rebecca Hughes, will be speaking at the DASSH conference on Global Employability and the Humanities Graduate:
Internationalisation and graduate employability are both hot topics in Higher Education. They will remain so as long as institutions seek to attract talented staff and students from around the world and demonstrate the value of their degrees in terms of future career paths. The importance, impact, and long-term contributions of the Humanities and Social Sciences in relation to these key drivers of current institutional strategy are less often promoted. This talk will outline some major trends in internationalisation of Higher Education and explore the benefits and the risks of a campaign to promote humanities in the context of global employability debates.
This presentation builds on our recent report Mobilising the Humanities: the development perspective.
The Australasian Council of Deans of Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (DASSH) is the authoritative agency on research, teaching and learning for the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities in Australian and New Zealand universities. This one day event will give leaders of higher education a forum to share thoughts on the opportunities and challenges being faced at the forefront of transnational education.
