Abstract / Video
Project-based learning has become an integral part of many academic programmes. While it is not uncommon to see high-quality student work out of such learning experience, in many academic disciplines these work are rarely known to the public. To tackle this issue in our department, starting four years ago we have organized an annual public exhibition of student work. Each year, over half of students in the department participates in the exhibition, demonstrating their work on a variety of current economic issues. The exhibition has also become a major event locally, attended by hundreds of secondary school students each year. We believe other academic units can also benefit from a programme similar to ours, and we will be sharing our experience organizing this exhibition in our submission.
