Abstract

This chapter considers the role that higher education can play in fostering learners’ connectedness capabilities, examining the online and face-to-face learning experiences that can support professional connectedness. While transmissive pedagogic approaches continue to be dominant in many disciplinary areas, highly connected and networked learning experiences, such as work integrated learning, are becoming increasingly more common in higher education. This chapter explores the extent to which existing pedagogic approaches can be used to address connectedness learning needs, and how they could be adapted to do so more effectively. It sets out seven principles to guide pedagogic practice and outlines seven existing pedagogic strategies that have shown a demonstrated impact in enhancing graduates’ connectedness capabilities. Finally, the chapter introduces four studies which explore how connectedness pedagogies have been integrated into higher education learning and teaching in different universities, and the impact that they have had on student connectedness and graduate outcomes.
