To equip students with the skills and capabilities they need for the future of work, educators seek to deliver a range of experiential learning programmes in and around the curriculum. However, experiential learning with high proportions of in-person engagement can be complex and costly to deliver at scale.
Online models including team-based industry projects potentially offer substantial benefits including lower cost, broader geographic reach and enhanced scalability – but only if quality can be maintained.
The University of New South Wales Business School partnered with edtech startup Practera to design a new class of digital online ‘nano’ projects. These projects have subsequently scaled up and been deployed with students from >60 other institutions in Australia and around the world, including King’s College London.
In this webinar, presenters and panellists will:
- Share experience with designing & deploying digital industry projects & virtual internships to thousands of students
- Share Practera’s recently released research into Quality in Online Project Learning, analysing performance and critical success factors across a sample of 7905 participants from 22 universities, across 124 cohorts and 4 types of programs supported by the Practera platform
- Participate in the live panel discussion, facilitated by host Professor Laura-Anne Bull, Deputy Vice-Chancellor Students, James Cook University, Director Student Experience Strathclyde
Presenters & panellists include:
- Brigitte McKenna, Manager Career Accelerator UNSW Business School, Sydney
- Naomi Hewston, Internships Adviser, King’s College London
- Beau Leese, CEO & co-founder of Practera
