In the news: Connecting course material to the real world
Classroom exercise, interactive dialogue, current events
“Do these things really happen in the real world?” Perhaps, this question may sound familiar. In this session, participants will uncover one way to connect course material to the “real world,” using current events in the local community, across the country, and around the globe. As shown in this session, the exercise can be adapted and used in a variety of business courses, face-to-face and online, and with undergraduate and graduate students. Participants will gain insights on the exercise and its different versions and practice creating a sample exercise to use in their courses. Instructional materials will also be provided.
