Project, project, project!
Another essential part of the cohort was the team project work; content were created, developed and designed by teams. Each team was mentored by one of the seven lecturers (see above bullet points) and assisted by at least one member of teamTSWi. The assistants helped their team(s) with timelines, resource gathering & with scheduling meetings with mentors. The solutions and creative resources developed by the teams were just simply amazing!
