Industry Advisors

Authenticity is a key requirement for a scenario-based task. The challenges offered to students must be real-world — something they would be asked to do if they had been hired for their target job. The details and supporting documents must ring true in order to generate student involvement and provide useful work experiences.

Our Industry Advisory Panel convenes to assure continued authenticity of our scenarios, tasks, classroom techniques, and course material. For our latest project, we have an Ad Hoc Advisory Panel that consists of industry professionals and researchers who serve as judges for student presentations, subject matter experts for faculty and researchers, reviewers on assessments and tasks, advisors for faculty needing additional skills, and in myriad other ways that add to the quality and authenticity of the scenario-based experience for our students and faculty.

We thank our panel participants for generously sharing their time, ideas, knowledge and experience with our faculty and staff.
