University of the Arts London – Trial Project Summary

Our project explores how web 2.0 social networking tools can be used to build a community of practice that links the academic world with the professional one in a multifaceted exchange, enabling students to gain insights into the world of professional practice and industry, but also for industry to gain the critical perspectives on practice that an academic environment can provide.
