Centred on crucial topics on food security, the Global Food Collaborative is a platform for students worldwide to collaborate, share insights, and co-create solutions. Through the use of LMS Canvas and utilising interactive maps, students can visually share their research, engage with peers and reflect on global perspectives.

  • Global Perspective: In an increasingly connected world, students might be eager to understand global viewpoints. Engaging with peers from different parts of the world offers insights that local or national programs might not.
  • Collaborative Learning: The program offers a unique opportunity to learn from and with others. Collaboration can lead to richer insights, diverse solutions, and a deeper understanding of complex topics.
  • Real-world Application: Addressing global issues, like food and nutrition security, allows students to apply their knowledge and skills in a real-world context, making learning more relevant and engaging.
  • Skill Development: Beyond subject knowledge, our program fosters a range of skills, including critical thinking, digital literacy, cross-cultural communication, research, and presentation.
  • Interactive & Creative Learning: The program’s emphasis on interactive tools offers an alternative to traditional learning methods. It caters to various learning styles and can be especially appealing to digital natives.
  • Networking: Building connections with peers globally can be invaluable. These relationships can lead to future collaborations, friendships, or even opportunities.
