Rea Prouska: Empowering Students by Enhancing Employability Skills: The Case of the BA Human Resource Management Programme

Rea Prouska
I am a Senior Lecturer in Human Resource Management (HRM) and Programme Leader for the BA (Hons) HRM at Middlesex University Business School. My research interests include, among other areas, student and graduate employability. Prior to joining Middlesex, I was a research assistant for University of Manchester funded research projects relating to (i) career aspirations and career skills of British and non-British students, and (ii) cultural differences between Chinese and British students in their selection of working environments and recruitment. I have recently been awarded a Learning & Teaching fund from the Business School for the purpose of exploring the ways in which the use of e-portfolios can enhance student employability.

The workshop will have a unique feature. It will partly be run by students who have participated in an e-portfolio project with the purpose of showcasing their work and reflecting on the e-portfolio process and their overall experience. The session will also explore the meaning of e-portfolios and employability, as well as show how e-portfolios have been used for the purposes of assessment. Main research findings from this project will also be incorporated into the discussion.
