I am writing a case study based on aspects of my experience teaching an enterprise module to post graduate students. It will be part of a collaborative paper with Dr Lisa Harris of Southampton University. The focus in this paper is the challenge for universities in preparing students for the changing nature of skills required in the workplace. My case study explores a few methods I have used in class to emulate aspects of the creative and media industries ‘life world’ such as a guest speaker event, during which we made use of various social media tools. In analysing the activities in more depth, I have identified some issues for international students who have found aspects of the module difficult.
