How to assess your employability skills

Remember that this is an initial self-assessment exercise to help you to develop any skills which you feel are of importance to you in planning your future. Few students are likely, at this stage,to have developed the majority of these skills to a high level. Don't feel that a low rating in any skill area is an admission of ‘failure’: you may have no wish to use that skill or you may be able to improve upon it with a little practice. The list is of 8 skills selected for this exercise because: they are frequently sought by employers when recruiting graduates. They aren't exclusively related to any single career area or degree subject.

Quick Start Guide to Flipping your Classroom with Peer Instruction – Turn to Your Neighbor: The Official Peer Instruction Blog

Flip your classroom with Peer Instruction. Peer Instruction is the first innovative teaching method I tried the second time teaching my “big girl” course – a graduate level seminar on educational theory at Teachers College, Columbia University. I had been working as a postdoc with Eric Mazur for a semester, and I relished the challenge of seeing if PI would work in a small, social science course with masters and doctoral students. There were no databases of questions or ConcepTests available or user manuals for my area. Once I had decided to use PI, my next thought was – “OK, so how do I get started?” Using Peer Instruction to Flip Your Classroom: Highlights from Eric Mazur’s Recent Visit.

Using Peer Instruction to Flip Your Classroom: Highlights from Eric Mazur’s Recent Visit

Very, very few of us said that we learned those skills from lectures, prompting Mazur to say, “We don’t learn this way. Why do we teach this way?” Mazur was on campus to deliver this year’s John E. There is great interest in higher education today in what is often called the “flipped classroom.” Mazur described traditional college teaching, especially science teaching, as follows: information is transferred from instructor to student during class, and students work to assimilate that information after class through homework and problem sets. Research Spotlight on Peer Tutoring. Found In: teaching strategies Peer tutoring is a term that’s been used to describe a wide array of tutoring arrangements, but most of the research on its success refers to students working in pairs to help one another learn material or practice an academic task.

Research Spotlight on Peer Tutoring

Peer tutoring works best when students of different ability levels work together (Kunsch, Jitendra, & Sood, 2007). During a peer tutoring assignment it is common for the teacher to have students switch roles partway through so that the tutor becomes the one being tutored. Since explaining a concept to another helps extend one’s own learning, this practice gives students the opportunity to understand better the material being studied. What does the research say about peer tutoring? Some benefits of peer tutoring for students include higher academic achievement, improved relationships with peers, improved personal and social development as well as increased motivation.
