The students experience first-hand the skills that they will need in the workplace such as communication, negotiation, team work, leadership, project management as well as specific business skills such as financial planning, selling, marketing, IT etc. The classroom provides the context and these practical components cement the learning. This approach works very well in IADT due to our small class sizes and our links with local enterprises. For me, it allows me to bring together my 12 years of work experience in various business and management roles, my years of lecturing in business modules and my interest in promoting experiential learning opportunities in the classroom.
