‘Careers Event’ for MA: DTCE students (Recording)

On May 4th 2017, we organised a special ‘Careers Event’ for MA: DTCE students.
Our Distance learners had an opportunity to join the on campus students, through Adobe Connect for a ‘live’ session.

We had invited two former alumni to come and speak: Annalisa Manca who since graduation has been working as an educational technologist at the University of Dundee and has recently begun PhD studies in Belfast, and Michael Masterman who is e-learning manager at Medicine at Manchester.
Ian Hutt, the university’s Head of Distance Learning Operations, came along and gave the employers’ perspective on what they are looking for in graduates like these — and finally Andrew Welsh of Instinct, a recruitment agency specialising in the digital education sector talked about what kinds of jobs are out there and what help his company can give to you now and after graduation.
