Many educational experiences can fall under the general descriptor of “experiential learning,” including live cases, action learning projects, and external consulting projects. While all of these require students to assess complex business problems and deliver innovative solutions to an external partner, instantiations of experiential learning differ on the degree of guidance provided to students and the level of professionalism demanded of them.
In this webinar, Dr. Sandra Loughlin from the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business will describe the developmental approach Smith is taking to conceptualize experiential learning and help students succeed. She will highlight the role of two providers–Real Time Cases and EduSourced–in Smith’s efforts to equip students with the problem solving and client management skills necessary for mutually rewarding engagements with external partners.
