Working with Community Partners to Create Beneficial Experiential-Learning Opportunities

Nick Geidner, Assistant Professor Communication & Information - Journalism

As faculty across the university are being asked to integrate more experiential learning into the curriculum, we must work with numerous community partners — such as governmental, non-profit and/or media organizations — to create meaningful projects that simulate a real-world environment and have impact. This presentation will outline practical concerns, benefits, and takeaways of working with community partners to create courses or class projects using this style of engaged pedagogy.​
