    Abstract

    Universities need to meet the changing needs of students, better equip them to meet industry requirements, and find new ways to differentiate in an increasingly competitive marketplace. These challenges are forcing universities to reconsider their approach to teaching. The pop-up restaurant with a Michelin starred chef documented in this paper demonstrates one such way in which students can be engaged in an experiential learning activity that provides discipline knowledge and relevant transferable skills required for industry. The activity demonstrates an effective way for university departments to collaborate internally in order enhance the student experience, as well as externally with industry partners. Working with an external industry expert has proved to inspire and motivate the students to learn and try new things, gain confidence in their abilities and employability, and ultimately it has ignited a greater passion for the industry
