Given the current global challenges brought on by the COVID 19 pandemic, virtual learning has become the new norm (at least for the time being) in Universities globally.
Although PATHFINDER has always been involved in developing virtual learning programmes, we’ve seen an increase in the demand of theses types of programmes internationally. Including a recent work integrated learning programme we designed with RMIT Australia.
Collaborations such as this are now more important than ever. They’ve been key for students to gain practical business experience as well as a greater understanding of the role of social entrepreneurship in the international development sector.
Students from around the world had overwhelmingly positive feedback on their experience working with PATHFINDER, “I would recommend this kind of experience to other students. It’s a great opportunity to get out of your comfort zone and challenge yourself” said Qihui Wang, studying from China.
Andrew Crane, studying from Australia expressed his interest in, “working for an organisation that works concurrently with industry and academia. This project gave me a good insight into how small, independent organisations like Pathfinder can accomplish this task, especially within constantly evolving political and economic environments.”
