Industry Engagement Workshops

Breaking News clip with skills shortage statistics

Studium Alliance is facilitating industry engagement workshops, on behalf of the global education sector, one industry at a time. We bring together leaders and specialists from various industries to help Higher Education Institutions better prepare students for the world of work.

Goal:

Build and maintain a living body of knowledge that higher education institutions can use to adapt their curricula on an ongoing basis, to meet industry skills requirements 

Educational Positioning:

We do this one industry or industry section at a time and we construct the skills requirements at a more granular level than what is typically covered in curriculum accreditation processes. To illustrate the level of outcome we work at, consider this very typical example:

A typical learning outcome for accreditation standards in Logistics: 

"Conduct thorough risk assessments for the transportation and storage of dangerous goods, identifying potential hazards and implementing appropriate risk mitigation strategies."

 

What logistics employers would typically say is that graduates know and understand this at an academic level, but they are not able to apply this practically, using the contemporary tools of the trade. In our process, we aim to identify the actual tools and technologies that are being used for risk assessments, including industry best practices for risk mitigation. 

Ownership:

The process is facilitated in a non-profit organisation, with industry governance and custodianship of the content. The output is made available as a FREE "open education resource" to any global institution preparing graduates for that industry. 

Workshop Contributors:

For each industry we tackle, we are inviting subject matter experts representing major industry employers, as well as industry acknowledged thought leaders and influencers. Their role would be to help us understand the industry trends and how these impact the current and future skills requirements.
