Kirk Heriot, John Finley

Kirk Heriot, John Finley The purpose of this session is to describe a unique active learning pedagogy we use. Micro Student Consulting Projects" are an alternative to traditional active learning experiences. In our session, we describe how we take students outside the classroom to complete "consulting" projects for local organizations, both businesses and not-for-profit organizations. We will also describe the process we use to administer our program. Lastly, we will present examples of student projects and address how variations of student consulting projects might be used by faculty in other academic disciplines."
