An important aspect to effective learning is the opportunity to work with peers and to learn from classmates who work in other industries. To this extent, faculty will facilitate a discussion board each week with one or more open-ended questions designed to achieve the learning objectives. Participants will be required to respond to the questions or to the responses from their classmates to demonstrate active learning.
