Special issue of the Journal of Learning and Teaching for Graduate Employability

You are invited to submit a paper for the TEN-STARS special issue of the Journal of Teaching and Learning for Graduate Employability, edited by Professor Shelley Kinash and Dr Trina Jorre de St Jorre.

We are looking for empirical articles (maximum 8000 words) that examine practical solutions, approaches or initiatives that advance the employability, career and success of university graduates. For example, by improving student transitions, assessment and student learning experiences, or by connecting with employers and industry.

We strongly encourage papers which are partnerships between stakeholders (industry, graduates, students and academics).

What is TEN-STARS?

TEN-STARS (The  Employability Network – Students, Transitions, Achievement Retention & Success) is an international network of colleagues who are dedicated to advancing the employability, career and overall contributions and successes of university graduates. The network was convened by Professor Shelley Kinash at the 2018 STARS conference in Auckland. Amongst other goals and objectives the network seeks to share good practice and collaborate on employability research. As such, the publication of this special issue was identified as the first of many collaborative outputs of the group.
