Pedagogical Innovation in Business in Germany

Under the auspices of the Initiative for Technology Enhanced Learning and the Global Future(s) Curriculum Studio, Professors Anja Banchoff and Joe Cunningham redesigned the Level IV class Business in Germany to include a unit on entrepreneurship (Existenzgründung) in the German context. In order to practice their advanced speaking skills and expand upon course content areas, groups of 2-3 students conducted hour-long interviews with Berlin-based entrepreneurs. The following short video features clips of the students as they interviewed their German partners using the synchronous Web conferencing tool Zoom.  

Many thanks to Linda Huber and Alfred Schoeninger of the Center for New Designs in Learning and Scholarship for technical support of this video production.
