ACTIVITIES: Four per chapter that leverage real-world scenarios for students. These activities include:
  • Chapter aligned questions focusing on tomorrow’s workplace skills that require students to record their responses on video. 
  • Ethics activities highlight real-world scenarios asking  students to respond to open-ended questions.
  • Working the Net cases requiring students to complete and submit web-research. 
  • Critical Thinking Cases bring together all of the material from a single chapter into a case study assignment.

PRACTICE ASSESSMENTS: Tied to specific learning objectives with instructional feedback allow for assessment as a learning tool rather than simply an evaluation tool. These assessments prepare students for high-stakes exams, serve as a self-evaluation tool, and focus learning on areas where students show deficiency. 

VIDEOS: SME-selected and curated videos incorporated into the learning platform means they are more likely to be viewed and more tightly integrated into the content. This also keeps students from searching YouTube on their own.
