Work Ready Skills and Planning Your Career is a new subject taught online to 110 second year undergraduate students across four faculties and five campuses. The subject content was published in the LMS, with additional technologies being employed to further engage students, such as building a webfolio in PebblePad and the use of Blackboard Collaborate to hold fortnightly webinars. Students were encouraged to approach the subject as a self-paced one, with assessment tasks and webinars scheduled in such a way as to provide structure to enable completion of the learning activities on time. In this presentation, we will describe the design of the subject and reflect on the effectiveness of the teaching and learning activities and technologies used. We will also discuss the preliminary results of a pilot study measuring the Career Decision Self-Efficacy (CDSE) of students at the start and end of semester. Career Decision Self-Efficacy has been used in previous studies as a measure of the effectiveness of career development interventions.
