February 1, 2024 John-Paul Takats

In this talk, Professor John-Paul Takats will share his experiences of transforming a typical group project that was done with a made-up client / topic into a collaboration between graduate students and local non-profit organizations in Rochester. Key topics of exploration include how clients were recruited, the level of instructor involvement in client interactions, the additional workload for the instructor, the varying success rates of each semester's projects, and practical tips for those considering similar initiatives
