Norwich Works: Creating a New Classroom

March 11, 2020

College is a time to expand horizons, learn new things, and challenge world views. This can be difficult for students that find what’s comfortable, take multiple classes with the same faculty, and focus on courses in their major. In this episode we shift away from research and focus on the classroom to see what Norwich is doing to get student’s out of their comfort zone.
