Date & time

2 p.m. – 3 p.m.


Samantha Larocque, Lead, Experiential Learning


This event is free



This workshop is for Concordia faculty members and instructors. Would you like to design a project-based learning activity for students in your upcoming course with a real-world partner? Riipen, an online platform, is the perfect tool to do this. 

Riipen is free for Concordia Faculty members and instructors. It can connect you to thousands of companies and non-profits who can provide a case study, data, or a real problem that needs solving for your students to work on. Your students will gain practical experience and transferable skills, and network with potential future employers. The platform also offers tools to help you track student's progress through assignments. 

This workshop will introduce you to Riipen's features and show you how to connect with partner organizations and incorporate project-based learning activities into your course. 

Learn more about Riipen, the world’s largest marketplace of work-integrated learning experiences for students. Riipen works in partnership with BHER, with support from the Government of Canada.
