Abstract

The authors review a transformative global classroom project that links undergraduate students in the UK and Asia and how cross-disciplinary peer collaboration is used to enhance employability. The authors explore how international collaborations can simulate some of the complexities of working in the modern creative industries and highlight how social media platforms can facilitate blended learning that seeks to develop both digital literacies and global citizenship. Students from London work collaboratively with peers studying in Asia at three partner institutions adopting multiple roles as researcher, advisor and expert reviewer and co-create learning outcomes which support the development of attributes and capabilities required by the future creative industries.
