This event is co-sponsored by USC Connect and the Center for Teaching Excellence.
Students learn best when they are actively engaged. Think about it...when you were in grade school, didn’t you love getting out of the classroom, exploring the “real world?” Students still love it, even ours, and it’s a great way to make their learning relevant, applicable, and just plain fun. This session will show you how engaging business and community partners can enhance your course and create an environment where students are learning and loving it. We’ll discuss how to get started, helpful hints, and potential pitfalls, and how to avoid them. Walk away with ideas on how business and community partnerships can make your classes even better, and gain practical and helpful hints that will make these partnerships work for everyone.
