  • Title: How to improve student graduate attributes?

  • Abstract:

    Problem solving, communication and information literacy are just a few graduate attributes that employers value, yet it commonly appears that students upon graduating show only limited improvement in these areas. For instance, 3rd year students can still be thrown by relatively simple unfamiliar problems, even after working actively on numerous related exercises and problems throughout their degree. I will discuss some of the things I have implemented in my teaching to specifically target the development of student graduate attributes. My experience is with teaching mathematics, physics and engineering students, however much of my discussion will be non-discipline-specific.
