Engaging Conversations Series

Across disciplines at Georgia Tech, a common goal we have for our students is to prepare them to succeed as professionals after graduation.  Not only do we hope to graduate highly qualified candidates for the job market, but we know that students tend to be more invested in learning when they expect to use what they learned.  As Ambrose et. al. (2010) argue, students are more motivated to learn when course material “interests them or has relevance for important aspects of their lives.”

Join us for this brown bag luncheon to discuss ideas for bridging the gap between the classroom and practice as we seek to develop our students as professionals and engage them more in our classes.
