Jenny Silverthorne presented this month’s Learning@Lunch seminar, which looked at the difficulties that students may face in making the transition from their studies to the workplace, and why some of the common methods to ease this transition such as placements may not be as effective as expected.
The very end of the seminar and some discussion was unfortunately missed by the podcasting system as the session ran somewhat longer than expected.
Due to strike action at the University, several sessions in the staff and pedagogic development programme had to be rescheduled. This mainly affected the sessions on developing professionalism in students. As material becomes available, it will be added to this page.
In this section, Jenny Silverthorne presented the Learning@Lunch session on Teaching and Learning about Professionalism. This seminar looked in detail at the differences between undergraduate studies and professional practice, and the difficulties that students can face in navigating the change from one environment to the other.
