In the transdisciplinary theme, ‘how we organise ourselves’, Marina set up a business with the students where they did market research to decide on a product, they created a company, they made the product, marketed the product, sold it and then individually the students decided what they wanted to do with their profit. Some donated it, others wanted to keep the money for themselves (this was their choice).
The students had complete ownership of this unit as they were involved in all the decision making and as they earned more company shares so their vote was worth more.

The ah-ha moment:
The students took over the unit and it was no longer Marina’s unit. They made all the decisions, solved problems and took full ownership of the unit.
