This paper describes the use of the SEEN Framework, a tool developed to describe attributes that are not commonly assessed, to support academic development discussions about these attributes. Academic developers are often approached to help academics embed such attributes in their courses to enhance students’ employability. The framework provides a structure for conversations between academic developers and academics. Using examples of these conversations we show how existing practice can be analysed and alternative teaching activities identified. Academics who have engaged in this process report useful outcomes in relation to the development of specific teaching approaches and reflection on their practice.
