OPEN Project at Aberdeen

There is a very interesting project starting up at Aberdeen, below is a bit from their introduction:

Online Presence, Employability, Network (OPEN) is a novel project supported by the Higher Education Academy (HEA), and being developed the University of Aberdeen’s Careers Service. We believe that this is the first time a consultation with students, academics, employers, social media practitioners, and other HEIs will have been undertaken to help develop a set of social media resources to ensure our future graduates are equipped to maximise their employability via digital methods (“digital employability”).’

There are lots of links with their plans and Digitally Ready, and we will hope to provide links to their resources.
