Using 'real-world' experiences for student learning

Students at the University of Melbourne often have the opportunity to work on 'real-world' projects. David talks here about the deep satisfaction students get in seeing something come to fruition in the course of their studies, and the far-reaching benefits to learning when they are given the responsibility of designing for a real client. He also outlines the continuity he has built into his course design, with students from past years returning to mentor their current-year colleagues.
