Abstract:

Purpose ‐ The purpose of this paper is to place all of the contributions to this special issue into a theoretical framework and to highlight the role that the so-called "information age mindset" has in the facilitation of employability skills. Design/methodology/approach ‐ The paper discusses the major themes of this special issue. Findings ‐ Undergraduate students do see the importance of technological innovation in the classroom but they see the development of experiential or work-based skills to be more important. Practical implications ‐ Future curriculum design should consider the expectations and attitudes of the modern day undergraduate student to ensure that potential employability is maximised. Originality/value ‐ The findings are placed into the wider context of the emerging field of evolutionary educational psychology.
