Students as Producers @ LSE is a series of linked hybrid learning projects designed to transform the learning, teaching and assessment experience through supporting, embedding and scaling the role of students as coproducers and co-constructers of course content and knowledge. Over 70 successful interconnected initiatives have been undertaken across a three-year period. http://lti.lse.ac.uk/students-as-producers-lse
Students as Producers @ LSE were also the winners of our Overall Award in 2016.
Caseworx re-imagines experiential learning through video-based, interactive case-learning environments. It takes the case study – a core pedagogy in numerous disciplines. It then transforms it into a videobased, interactive learning environment. We solve primarily for traditional students who are expecting interactive, multimedia learning. The program is also offered to non-traditional learners often excluded from high infrastructure experiential learning.

Good Work Foundation Project: The Open Learning Academy
This is a model that focuses on English literacy, maths literacy, digital literacy, and life skills for rural, school-aged children. In addition, conservation learning is added for all participating learners on a monthly basis. The project thus supports a need in South Africa to educate rural communities on environmental sustainability. http://www.goodworkfoundation.org

‘Learning.Futures: A Strategy For Learning Transformation At University Scale’
Learning.Futures is a radical cross-university approach to creating a student learning experience that involves highly interactive and collaborative learning, combined with the best of online learning.
Over the past eight years University of Technology Sydney has rolled out a university-wide strategy to enhance students’ capabilities to succeed in a changing and complex future world. The strategy transforms students’ learning through aligning curriculum renewal and innovation, curriculum-led learning technologies, and new learning spaces.
This transformation has been supported by investing AU$1 billion to redevelop the UTS campus. The design of the new spaces has been driven by an educational vision characterised by blended and collaborative approaches including both online and face-to-face experiences. Thus, rather than standard lecture theatres, UTS’s new campus comprises collaborative learning spaces, both formal and informal, to support this blended learning approach to its new curriculum.
The Learning.Futures project has enhanced student learning outcomes. It also achieves better-than-average learner engagement scores in Australia’s national University Experience Study. This is the section of the study that measures the quality of interpersonal study and the quality of interactive learning experiences.
