Abstract

This Teaching and Learning panel explores different responses to the question ‘ Learning Journey- meeting the challenges’ discussing initiatives from 4 different institutions on embedding employability and pedagogical approaches to overcome some of the challenges facing us in higher education. The panel consists of four members of the BSC Learning and Teaching Network and will include short presentations addressing ‘applied’ vs ‘theoretical’ approaches of learning, and whether they are diametrically opposed? A critical reflection on the impact and increasing issues of the ‘disciplinary content’ and how this fits with teaching ‘skills’, and problematising the different initiatives we apply to support students on employability. Whether students are looking towards the Criminal, Social, Youth or ‘Justice’ sector, this discussion debates whether this means criminology graduates can be identified as a ‘jack of all trades master of none? (or many). In effect, the panel through dialogue and discussion will engage to answer the core question- What does a criminologist ‘do’?
