    Abstract

    Vertically Integrated Projects (VIP) is an innovative HE pedagogy that was introduced to the University of Strathclyde from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2012. Initially established for use within the fields of science and engineering, development work by the VIP Leader in the School of Education has resulted in several significant successes for the School, Faculty and University across the time of the current Review. Following a special invitation to present at Annual International Consortium Conference (Atlanta, US) in May 2017, this ongoing initiative was subsequently recognised internationally by the Georgia Institute of Technology as a 'World’s First' in bringing the pedagogy to the field of Humanities and Social Sciences. Using the original School of Education VIP as a lens, it is instructional to reflect on its operation and identify material impact across the term of the current review, together with also postulating on future potential actions. It is evident that through the work of their VIP Leader, the programme continues to grow successfully and now forms a key strategic component of the School of Education, Faculty of HaSS and wider University.
