A novel of twists and surprises

What can teachers and curriculum designers do to enhance students' effectiveness in college and work?

Four tactics might be appropriate.

First, simulation and real world settings may be useful they are designed to give students classroom experience that mirror the workplace.

Second, use a card sort with staff. There are several available. They can be done in groups on hard copy or on-line sorts using a virtual set of cards.

Third, you could conduct an audit to find out what is already happening and to find examples of good practice.

Fourth, it may be useful to look at what employers want from graduates, you can then include the skills in curriculum design.
