Abstract

The setting for this case study is a second-year core module for accounting students in the business school of a modern university. We shall explain how we have used authentic, practical online experiences in the module to enhance students' employability. The business school offers a range of activities to support students as they develop the skills they need to make them more employable. In addition, we have brought an employability specialist into the module's teaching team to deliver sessions and, importantly, to make explicit the employability skills embedded in the module. This case study will show how, in an online environment, we have used a technical module on the programme to give students the experience of working in virtual teams. This provides them with an opportunity to develop the skills they will need in their future careers and to be successful in virtual assessment centres.
