Authors



Abstract

Postgraduate taught students are known to be a diverse group and their learning needs and preferences are different to that of the undergraduate student. This paper discusses the potential for these postgraduate students to benefit from actively participating in a research-led student activity. The submission of posters from students on the MSc in Environmental Sustainability and Green Technology to the postgraduate conference: “Outside the Frame: Thinking and Engaging Differently” is described. The potential for this type of multidisciplinary forum to enhance the postgraduate taught learning experience and to support interdisciplinarity among postgraduate students is discussed.
