Global Scope Regional is a 3-week work integrated learning experience which allows international students to engage with government agencies, enterprises and not-for-profit organisations. Throughout the experience, students are supported by the Global Scope Regional Practera App. This app guides teams to achieve the project outcomes. The innovative technology allows students to access all learning content, collaborate with team members, submit and upload deliverables/documents and gain feedback from mentors and clients multiple times throughout the program.
The project involved one hundred students from the University of Wollongong, University of Newcastle and University of New England as well as over ten regional organisations who engaged a student team. Collaboration, communication, critical thinking and teamwork were ranked as the skills students developed most when participating in the Global Scope Regional program.
