Empowering students to become the social change agents of tomorrow

Presented by Dr Fanny Salignac (Centre for Social Impact, UNSW Business School)

Empowering students to become the social change agents of tomorrow

Dr Fanny Salignac designed COMM1000 – Creating Social Change: From Innovation to Impact to empower students to become responsible leaders and the social change agents of tomorrow. One core idea that underpins the way in which she teaches this course is the belief that students are active knowledge creators rather than passive learners. An important aspect of her teaching is therefore to empower her students to take leadership of their own learning journey. To do so, she uses blended and flipped classroom methods that allow her to create an environment in which students are active participants and in which they feel inspired.
