Learning through production

Learning through production is when you are actively applying your skills and knowledge to create some form of output that can be shared, evaluated or discussed by others.

Production can occur individually or as part of a group activity. 

More example activities include:

Creating a blueprint; designing a PowerPoint presentation; building a website; writing a blog post; producing a video; making a model.

I'm happiest when I'm making things, so I find learning through production really rewarding. I’ve enjoyed making posters for presentations, and we had to produce a consultancy proposal and actually discuss it with people from industry. When you see your output, you feel really proud that you've applied your knowledge and skills to something real."
