Improving career development capabilities through Visible Learning Career development is the term that best describes a complex process of managing life, learning and work over the lifespan – Australian Blueprint for Career Development (Miles Morgan, 2010). Proficiency in learning general capabilities such as critical thinking, creative thinking, and collaboration can also be viewed as valuable career-based skills for the 21st century. Social Cognitive Career Theory (SCCT) may suggest that students could explicitly learn these capabilities as part of their classroom learning experience, they would generate greater self-efficacy as life-long learners which would lead to positive career outcomes in the future. The mechanism in which this could happen is via a cross-disciplinary clinical teaching intervention with a focus on the use of feedback.
