Active learning in higher education: (1) Engaging students in authentic project-based learning to facilitate the development of graduate attributes in the context of professional preparation, and (2) Sharing learning and teaching experiences with team-based experiential learning when transitioning from face-to-face to online learning

The first presentation covers how integrating authentic project-based learning in the form of a song competition into the curriculum design fosters students’ employability thinking.

The second presentation covers teachers’ and students’ team-based WIL learning experiences when they transitioned between online and face-to-face delivery modes at a large Australian university business school. Focus will be on how this experience during the pandemic can help to improve curriculum practice. Participants are encouraged to share their own active learning experiences.
