Students Learning With Communities Second Online Annual Awards Event

On 28 April the Programme for Students Learning With Communities once again celebrated its annual awards event online, as a Twitter Blitz. We were delighted to be joined on Twitter by so many staff, students, community partners, and industry mentors to celebrate the many community engaged research and learning projects carried out this year in the curriculum.

The Deputy President of TU Dublin officially opened the event, and the TU Dublin Students Union Vice President for Events + Engagement and incoming Students Union President added his congratulations, both by video. They highlighted the benefit of these projects to students and community partners and the extent of these collaborations. The formal part of the event where the awards and commendations were announced was followed by lots of tweeting, retweeting, and liking, with those receiving commendations, also tweeting selfies with their certs.
