20may4:30 pm5:30 pmThe World of Online Courses: Moving Careers Support into the 21st century - CICA Webinar Series


Event Details

The University of Reading, in collaboration with the Henley Business School, have just created their very first online careers course, Career Smart, hosted on the FutureLearn platform.

 This course aims to support those students graduating in 2020 during the summer before they begin their final year and encourages students to think earlier about their transition into the world of work, whilst providing careers advice at scale. As well as planning and writing content, the course educators were filmed, recorded and produced a suite of webinars, podcasts and screencasts to sit alongside the course.

 In this webinar, Daniel Mitchell (one of the lead educators) will tell you all about their story – from initial idea to actually launching the course. He will give you a guided tour of what the course looks like, the response from students and academics and you’ll hear how the team developed their digital skills along the way. Daniel will also share the very latest stats on how this new initiative is impacting on our careers registration data and all attendees will receive a fully editable PDF workbook that supplements the online course.
