HE Career Guidance and Digital Solutions in the Post-Pandemic World

Date and time
Thursday, 15 July 2021
15.30 - 17.00

On-line - Blackboard Collaborate

The session reported on a project which has investigated how career professionals at Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) have been using digital tools to respond to the career guidance needs of their students in the context of the Covid-19 crisis. 2020 saw a massive increase in the use of digital technology across the HE sector, and careers services have been no exception. This has created an ideal context to explore the place of digital technology in HE careers work post-pandemic.

Tom Staunton of iCeGS used this session to present findings from a series of detailed interviews conducted in 2020/21. The research was used to present findings about the potential place of digital technology post-pandemic. Through the session, we explored both positive aspects of digital technology as well as critical questions for the sector to consider.

The session was open to the public and completely free to attend.
