LEARNING EXPRESS (Overseas)

Learning Express is an Overseas Social Inn ovation Project wherein the students complete the project in a period of 2 weeks. Students use Design Thinking methodology to co-create innovative prototype solutions to real-life issues. They develop an understanding of the issues faced by the overseas community in the context of their social, economic & political culture, and analyse these issues from multiple perspectives. Through this project, students are able to apply their teamwork and communication skills, develop a better understanding of themselves, empathy for the community they are serving, and realise the positive impact they can make in the lives of a community in need. 

EEE staff who facilitates the LeX programme will accompany the students on their overseas trip. Both learning by staff and student helps to strengthen and support the polytechnic-wide initiative of Overseas Social Innovation Project (OSIP).
