About the event
Using the concept of ‘real-life learning’, we will introduce stories and experiences of how this approach can be incorporated into teaching practice, and explore some of the highs and lows along the way.
Our panel discussion will focus on sharing direct experience of embedding this approach in courses at DMU, and incorporate partner feedback on how it feels to work with colleagues to address key societal challenges.
