The PEETS Project: bringing the real world to the classroom

Inspiring students to learn and grow is the essence of higher education and should be the central component of educational approaches. However, it can be difficult to find innovative and engaging approaches that are experiential and promote employability and intercultural awareness amongst our graduates. These key life skills are best developed in an applied setting where the students learn by doing. This session will detail the PEETS project, which addresses all these essential aspects.
