Bridging Academic and Employability Skills Through Course Design

June 8, 2021 at 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM


The pandemic has increased students’ concerns over their career direction. This session is an opportunity for you to explore Carleton’s experiential learning approaches, Career Services’ Employability Framework, and the FUSION curriculum, all of which can help you guide your students toward improved skills development and articulation. 

In this workshop, we will introduce practical and easy-to-implement ways that you can integrate academic and employability skills development into your course design, from learning outcomes to activities and assessments.

This will be an interactive session; we encourage you to come with questions and ideas for your own courses so you can begin to identify where and how to easily integrate skills development into your course. 

By the end of this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Implement the principles of constructive alignment to develop robust experiential learning activities. 
  • Describe the curricular and co-curricular streams of FUSION at Carleton and how you can get support to incorporate FUSION skills development modules into your course.  
  • Identify Carleton’s Career Competencies, along with strategies to implement them in your course with the support of Career Services. 

This is a joint session offered by Teaching and Learning Services (TLS) and Career Services as part of an ongoing initiative to support skills development at Carleton.
