Instructional Approach

The nature of the Immersion Program requires a new and distinct model of teaching involving the investigation and exploration of content, theory and process related to the project at hand.

Grounding in basic ISD procedures, as well as an introduction to the field and literature all take place within the context of the solving the instructional problem and furthering development on a particular project. Teaching in this just-in-time fashion can involve various methods of instruction including lecture, discussion, collaborative group activities, guest experts as well as student-initiated presentations and contributions.

This instructional approach is supported by an electronic infrastructure that provides Web-based resources often created by students as well as instructors in order to complement and reinforce  teaching or  project management activities.
