With international travel restricted owing to COVID-19, SAE students are collaborating with their peers across the planet, and the results in the print and digital design field are impressive, says senior lecturer, Rachael Shea.

The online project is also helping to break cultural and geographical barriers, and has resulted in positive student feedback and new friendships, says Rachael.

Excellent feedback

Rachael, who is also SAE Australia’s Design Course Committee Chair, says, ‘We’ve run the project twice now, and the feedback from students has been excellent, with some of the relationships formed between students continuing outside the class’.

She says while the project includes SAE campuses in Melbourne, Sydney, Byron Bay and Dubai, she is looking to foster further cross-border collaboration with SAE colleagues in Germany and New Zealand.

SAE Byron Bay student Christel Cherryadi said she was grateful for the unique opportunity to team up with peers in other locations.

‘Having the chance to work with students from different places and cultures brings a new perspective to the overall collaborative activity than we’d normally get just working with students in class from our home campus’, she said.
