    Senior Learning Technologist
    Swinburne University of Technology.

    DonaI really enjoyed the challenge of Making the case, with the group. It was an invaluable opportunity working with the mentors who provided support and guidance throughout the project. There were presentations to introduce new trends and current research findings which provided a very valuable holistic experience throughout the week, while the mentors assisted to build the bridge between the research and real world situations.
