Over recent times concern about the physical environment has fluctuated. Even after the coverage of environment and sustainability issues in the education of many professions, a decline of community concern suggests that the potential for the inclusion of environmental issues in the work of professionals could be limited. This situation raises the question of whether recent graduates have the ability, through their workplaces, to act to minimise environmental harm. To assess this ability, based o...

There is increasing pressure on higher education to ensure graduates are work-ready, with Work-Integrated Learning (WIL) broadly acknowledged as playing an important role in the achievement of work-readiness. In Initial Teacher Education (ITE), such Work-Integrated Learning (WIL) is known as teacher placement and is highly valued. However, there have been recent concerns that current graduates are not equipped with the practical skills needed for the classroom, with particular attention focused ...

This chapter reports a research project aimed to develop pre-service science teachers' knowledge and understanding of contemporary stem contexts and pedagogies through participation in a stem mentoring initiative for schoolgirls. In this project, primary and secondary pre-service teachers (PSTs) volunteered to work as mentors, collaborating in the design of learning experiences suitable for school-aged girls, together with teacher educators and researchers in STEM at an Australian University. Ou...

The objective of this research was to explore how resilience skills can be developed in construction management students. The research examined the nature of resilience and the importance of the development of such skills for construction management graduates entering the world of work. The research data was collected using three separate stages. Firstly a desktop audit of eight construction management degree courses in Australia was undertaken to determine the nature of resilience training and ...
The Global Canopy illustrates coherent approaches of integrated teaching and learning between cohorts of domestic and international students at six different, sector-representative universities in Australia. The case studies explored in these chapters firmly locate and embed peer interactions in integrated learning and teaching approaches. This monograph showcases how separate cohorts of inbound and outbound students can interrelate to improve domestic student mobility and cultural understandings...

As Australian universities welcome significant numbers of inbound international students and increasingly encourage outbound domestic student mobility, the opportunities for global discipline connectedness, cross-cultural understandings, and fertile learning interactions abound. Yet these two “strands” of students rarely engage in deliberately organized discipline-based activities. They are passing “as ships in the night,” with opportunities for long-term relationships, improved discipline-based...

Universities have developed sets of Graduate Attributes (GAs) to be achieved by their graduates across all programs. GAs are often associated with development of ‘sustainability’ capabilities. However, there is little indication that sustainability GAs are assessed to determine the extent of achievement, application, relevance to professional practice or to provide feed-back into curriculum design. This paper reports on the development of the Graduate Attributes Assessment Tool (GAAT) to determi...

Australia is on the cusp of a range of global megatrends across technology, society, the economy, and the environment which are changing the world of work for future graduates beyond current recognition. Digitisation, technology and automation are requiring new skills at a rate of exponential change. Many of these skills have traditionally been classified as skills related to STEM disciplines. But future employability is now linked to the growing demand for 21st century STEM skills beyond existi...
