“The Timor-Leste Engineering in Complex Environments Study Tour was a really rich, real-world, international experience where our students could really challenge themselves. Over two-weeks the students were able to have a transformative, cross- cultural experience through exposure to EWB’s in-country partner organisations and practicing professionals. They were able to explore the complexities of a real context. The collaboration with EWB provided a richness that we wouldn’t have been able to do as easily on our own. The unit received exceptionally high satisfaction in the end of unit evaluation.”
Each immersive study tour format offers:
Leading practice tools and frameworks
Facilitated peer-group learning
Site visits and/or community homestays
Comprehensive risk and safety protocols
Participants will be supported through a structured learning journey involving reflective practice, cultural immersion, workshops and presentations from practitioners, and facilitated group discussion.
