Building a Case with Bricks

This workshop introduces active learning as one means to address the need to generate student employability competences, innovation and entrepreneurship by encouraging and supporting students and graduates to be entrepreneurial. It is widely recognised that students learn from entrepreneurial storytelling (Donnellon et al, 2014). By the end of the session, we hope you will be able to:

Develop understanding and practice of active learning through storytelling
‘Have a go’ at building
Explore problem solving through play
Enhance reflective practice
