The teaching teams follow current pedagogical trends and apply problem-based experiential learning using live projects within the industry. All classes use team teaching or co-teaching and you will be supported and integrated into the team with regular meetings, transparent preparation schedules and shared lesson plans. The regular team meetings and a reflective teaching team means opportunities for learning and shared responsibility. Strong industry contacts allow the team, and therefore the early career academic, to update theory with current practice. Also the industry contacts mean there are a large number of diverse internship opportunities for students creating a ‘real-world’ interest in the course.
