Embedding Webinar Employment Skills - March 2014 - February 2015
About our project
In January 2014, we received the good news that we had been successful in our bid for an extension of our original project via the Jisc FE and Skills Development and Resources Programme – Embedding Activity. We will continue to use this blog to record our activities, outputs and achievements over the next months.
The aims of our Embedding project are:
- to build on the positive outcomes and outputs of our original webinar project
- highlight the key employability skills identified in webinars by the employers who took part in our originalproject
- produce a well structured and resourced blendedlearning course to teach students the skills of setting up and running a webinar as a 21st century employabilityskill
- continue to disseminate our project findings and offersupport through Jisc Regional Support Centres to helpembed webinar training for students as part of a tutorial orcurriculum programme using a blended learning course.

This webinar had an extra layer of complexity for both Jesse and the students involved, as it was the first time we had run a webinar where the guest speaker wasn't supported 'in person'. This meant the student moderators had to explain clearly how everything way going to work. Having completed the Waitrose webinar earlier that morning, all the students felt well prepared for the additional level of complexity. To find out more about the running of this webinar do check out our other blog post, by clicking here.
Do watch the webinar, we hope you will agree with us that it was a very successful event, thanks for watching!
