a new way to Study & Learn

This is your gateway to a new way of learning. The courses on offer provide opportunities to engage in an independent though collaborative learning experience where you will learn by “doing” and “reflecting”.

In order to build a genuine community of practice each student is required in the first week to create a space of their own, a space to describe your work, receive feedback, and reflect on your progress. 

In addition to your work being open, all of your peers’ work and the course organization is delivered in an open and transparent manner. This allows all of us to use our talents; as everyone has something to learn and something to teach and provides opportunities for all of us to Step forward and try new things! A majority of activities in each course are designed to reflect real-life tasks, with the aim of making all of our learning experience active, useful, and related to the world.

TESTIMONIALS

What the Students Say

“I’m happy and proud enough that I tried in this mission and that’s all that matters. The point of this module is to learn and I learned a whole lot about digital audio and podcast making.”

1st Year Student

Intro to Digital Media CDM 

“The module that I have enjoyed the most since starting college would have to be Intro to Digital Media. Even though out of all the modules it is the one that involves the most work, I have thoroughly enjoyed the wide array of subjects we get to choose from and the tasks that we have to complete within them.”

1st Year Student

Intro to Digital Media CDM

I found it difficult to work in a group as we all had different timetables and were not always free at the same time. Slack made this easier as we could communicate back and forward to each other about the mission

1st Year Student

Intro to Digital Media CDM 

“hopefully, by the end of this four-year course, I can come back to this, my first presentation and still be proud of it but have lots more ideas on how I could improve it. It would be great to see and it would really be a tell on how far I’ve come and how much I’ve learned!!”
