Using professional Communities as a powerful learning tool

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Published conference proceedingConference contribution


This presentation is based on the reflections of two Solent computing lecturers. We firmly believe that student relationships with industry practice should go beyond industrial liaisons and the occasional external guest lecturer. We will reveal how we have managed to get students to engage with industry practitioners through the productive use of social media and local meet ups. In doing so, we have exposed students to the latest technological trends and enabled them to become part of
a wider professional community beyond their immediate peers.
