The final workshop report is now available for download here.

GECCO is based on the Disciplinary Commons, an established model that is successful in sharing practice and catalysing new practice. It involves a group of practitioners from diverse institutions (in this case, all involved with employability) meeting three times during an academic year to share, reflect on and document their practice.

As a persistent deliverable participants prepare a “showcase” representation describing an aspect of their practice (using the format from the CPHC Computing Graduate Employability: Sharing Practice report); additionally they critique each other’s showcases, and visit each other’s institutions.

This combination of critical self-examination and peer review helps participants understand their own practice, identify places where innovation and change are desirable, share what works, borrow from others, and see their own work in the context of a broad range of possibilities.
