PACE and Employability
April 19, 2017 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am| Free
You are invited to a forum where we will explore the impact of PACE on the Macquarie community.
With 2016 marking the full implementation of PACE and with so many new faces in key areas of the University, this forum will provide an opportunity to revisit the principles of PACE and to discuss how Macquarie has contributed to students, building their work-readiness, engagement as citizens and professional networks to become more employable in the 21st century.
Associate Professor Denise Jackson, visiting Fellow from Edith Cowan University, will set the ‘big picture’ backdrop through her research into the impact of work-integrated learning. We will discuss the difference PACE has made at Macquarie, and will include contributions from PACE program director Lindie Clark, unit convenor Dr Tanya Evans and a panel of Macquarie graduates who will talk about how PACE has impacted their lives beyond Macquarie.
This event will be chaired by Professor Sherman Young.
