Create hands-on assignments that enhance students' academic learning, with professional training provided by studio and shop staff.
Incorporate video projects into your course with specialized media training and staff support throughout the process.
Partner with highly trained undergraduates to design and teach your course using evidence-based active learning strategies.
Engage students in group challenges and reflection through a ropes course or other outdoor experience.
