Small Schools Network Affinity Group Meeting

September 22, 2020

11:00 - 11:55 EST

Topic: Incorporating Applied Learning into the Business Curriculum

The use of applied learning techniques such as student consulting projects represent an excellent opportunity to demonstrate the relevance of business curriculum, increase schools’ involvement with corporations/organizations, build faculty engagement, test innovative solutions to business challenges, and ultimately measurable impact for students, faculty and the organizations involved. Building this as part of the curriculum can, however, be difficult at the start.  This session will include a group of panelists who will share their success stories and the innovative ways in which they have incorporated student consulting projects within the classroom. Participants will be able to discuss panelists’ insights as well as their own experiences in small groups. As a result, participants will take away best practices in applied learning and ideas to incorporate student consulting projects into their business curriculum.
