An experiential and internationalised curriculum: a student case study

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This chapter presents a student case study of how an authentic, experiential and internationalised learning approach can be infused and scaffolded across the three years of an undergraduate sport management degree programme to assist in graduate employability. In one of their introductory first semester units/modules offered to all business students, Tyler was guided to complete several self-awareness activities and introduced to the use of appropriate reflective frameworks to begin identifying the benefits of their strengths and areas of weakness for improvement. In the first semester of their second year, Tyler was keen to continue to take advantage of all the workplace experiences offered in their course and so completed an optional placement in their managing sport facilities and services unit. In their final year, Tyler was working casually at their sport facility and had completed casual work at some sport events during the summer months – an opportunity which was promoted to them and their peers by their lecturer.
