Abstract

This presentation details an innovative pedagogy in the Social Science curriculum. It reports on the experiences of both students and lecturers involved in the creation and delivery of a work-related module which requires students to spend time in a volunteering setting. The presentation will discuss the rationale for the module, the experience of volunteering and hopes for reflective and directive feedback from the audience. The findings from the module are that students from widening participation backgrounds don't appreciate their employment capital. Using theory to reflect on a volunteering experience can enable students to enhance their digital and in vivo employability.
