From the mouths of babes

Q: Students lead in U:PASS for a wide variety of reasons – to mentor, to gain leadership skills, to improve communication skills, to get educational experience, to see what it’s like working for UTS.  What’s something you feel you have gained in one (or more) of these areas over the last fortnight? Why? (You may also choose another area if you wish!) 🙂

A: U:Pass has helped me see learning from a different perspective. One reason I do it is to help supplement the rigid and sometimes unhelpful traditional university learning. U:Pass can help students realise the benefits of working together and I think educating students on other ways to learn is useful. U:Pass indirectly exposes students to another method and gets them to see study from a different light.
