Students would benefit from talking with experts in their field of study. A system is needed to track completion of the student's interviews and report completion to the instructor.
Who is your idea designed for and how does it reimagine higher education to support the needs of tomorrow?
Meeting experts in their field will help all students, but it can help disadvantaged students the most. Often, students who are the first in their families to go to college don't have access to individuals that are leaders in their chosen field.
This idea emerged from:
What skills, input or guidance from the OpenIDEO community would be most helpful in building out or refining your idea?
How might the reporting work? How could the student interview reports be useful for others? Could one of the outputs be a list of experts for other students to contact?
What early, lightweight experiment might you try out in your own community to find out if the idea will meet your expectations?
Talk to a few experts on a subject and see how it goes. Talking to just 3 or 4 experts can provide a lot of feedback.
