Limited Capacity seats available

Open Session Limited to 40 Participants (First-Come, First-In)

This session explores the design of courses that connect graduate students with clients for challenging, authentic, real world learning. The session will include brief presentations and dialogues in which participants explore questions, challenges and expertise about this design approach.

The presenter is currently working with a research team to explore such courses at Royal Roads University. This research focuses specifically on courses with graduate students who work in teams to help clients with their current problems, challenges or opportunities.  In some of the courses, students and their clients were in different cities, provinces or countries.  Student, faculty and client experiences are explored in the study.  

The presenter is currently working with a research team with Amy Zidulka and BJ Eib to explore such courses at Royal Roads University. 

Participants in this session will go away with some findings from the study and with ideas from peers for customized implementation.

Alice MacGillivray, Consultant and Associate Faculty Member, Royal Roads University
I am an independent consultant and faculty member, based on Gabriola Island in B.C. Some of my most durable interests include leadership, formal and informal learning, and work in complex systems. Much of my work is informed by principles from natural systems. I have designed several credit and ProD courses in which adult graduate students or participants help clients work with real-world challenges.
