This activity, using individual reflection, group work and peer-to-peer learning, is built to provide students with a deeper analysis and understanding of a visit to a farm.
The activity unfolds in two locations: a field visit to a farm nearby the university, where students get to see a farm system and ask questions to the person in charge and a discussion in class on the visit, facilitated each time by a different group of students.
In addition, out of the 11 visits, students in their groups have to write a collective 2-page, group reflection for 5 of them that covers the main issues impacting the farm, which gives them the opportunity to analyse the visit in further depth.
