Bringing the World In
In this experience, professionals, practitioners, or stakeholders come into class as experts in their domain to lead a course session, replacing a regular lecture and supplementing instructors’ perspectives and expertise. Guest lectures give students a chance to gain unique information and perspectives, practice professional interaction, and self-direct learning through discussion with someone from the “real world.“
Example Learning Outcome: Values Thinking
Explain how the speaker’s perspective on sustainability is similar to and different from other experts and stakeholders encountered in class.
