Feature Articles

Providing students with learning opportunities that integrate disparate data into meaningful constructs can be a challenge for faculty. The author discusses an unfolding case study that provided simulated learning opportunities related to administrative student competencies, staged to increase in complexity and scope over time while affording multiple student evaluation opportunities. A hybrid delivery format was used, including Blackboard Learn e-technology, to support individual student assignments and small group collaboration, cloud technology for shared student document development, Excel budget manipulation, and face-to-face classroom interactions.
