Academic Innovations Videos

Claremont McKenna College faculty have thrown away the academic playbook this fall by turning their courses inside-out and creating innovative ways to meet the demands of an all-virtual academic semester.

They’ve revamped syllabi to capitalize on a wealth of digital resources. They’ve broadened their modes of teaching to mount the virtual possibilities. They’ve developed hands-on projects that students can design, execute, and share remotely.

Yet, the goal is the same as it has always been at CMC: To actively engage students and provide an immersive, personalized, and advanced academic experience.
