Deeper Impact: Working with Community & Industry Partners on Projects


Project-based learning builds student engagement by asking students to grapple with real-world issues and create products that are similar to the types of work they might do after graduation. But how might you take the next step and engage community and industry partners in your courses? How do you have students move from creating sample deliverables for hypothetical stakeholders to creating real products for actual firms and non-profits? We will investigate:


  • Work that BC faculty from across campus have already done with external partners
  • Ways in which you might work with RISE to identify and recruit potential partners
  • Strategies for “scoping” and troubleshooting projects with external clients
  • Strategies for “scoping” and troubleshooting projects with external clients
