This case narrative examines the integration of the fieldtrip into the student’s international event management degree experience. It concentrates upon visits to Belfast, Northern Ireland, where students have an immersive experience into event management, placemaking and regeneration in a post-conflict environment. The fieldtrip constitutes a deep learning pedagogy of real-world scenario and authentic dynamics that complement and enliven classroom activities and module readings. The digital artifacts developed by students, and their presentations on the last day of the fieldtrip, focus their studies whilst in the field.
