What role does the school faculty play?
If we work with a student body from a single higher education institution, we will be partnered with an educator/faculty member from that institution as a part of our team.
If we build a student team from several different higher education institutions, we will partner with an educator from one of the institutions or from an additional outside partner.
Whether they are from within a partner institution or from an additional outside partner, we will have an educator to provide that expert level of knowledge imperative to the students growth. They will work alongside the facilitators to guide the education of the students while following the hurly burly innovations' process.
How are students graded?
Involvement in the Legacy of Innovation Project is akin to a an internship moreso than a classroom experience. While the student is required to participate and produce work (papers, presentations, etc.), they will not receive a grade for sole efforts nor the culmination of all efforts. At the close of the course, the students, professionals and facilitators reflect on challenges, successes, and all the learning moments along the way. It is at this time the students (and professionals) are encouraged to provide positive feedback to themselves and others in order to determine their own progress and if their goals were met. They will be able to reflect on their new skills acquired and their natural and previously learned skills that they've enhanced. They will take these skills with them through their lives and careers.
