A MATCH MADE IN HEAVEN: STUDENT MOBILITY, EMPLOYABILITY AND EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING
Hanoi National University of Education
Saturday 14 December
Dr. Matthew Piscioneri
A recent study conducted into the relationship between study abroad programs and enhancing students’ employability attributes also collected data which suggested these programs heightened students’ self reflection on their own learning processes. Students developing a meta-attitude to their own learning is seen by progressive pedagogues to be a critical factor in ensuring positive and sustainable learning outcomes. This paper reports on the various ways in which students responded to the experiential learning “teachniques” applied during their study abroad. Findings are also presented that indicate the ways in which this international experience contributes to graduate employability attributes, especially in the areas of self reflexivity, critical thinking and inter-cultural competence. In the context of student mobility, employability and academic preparation for life ‘beyond the academy’, the results of the study suggest a “win-win” result. A result, which in the presenter’s opinion, should encourage more investment in the emergent synergies at Monash that explore such a unique and productive nexus.
Many thanks to my hosts Dr. Tuong Huy Nguyen and Ms. Linh Le for organizing the event.
