scott grant & letting students drive the bus

Scott Grant is an assistant professor in the College of Business at the University of Findlay in Findlay, Ohio. Scott, Jackie and Lougan discuss the value of general education courses and electives toward one’s future career path. Scott believes that teaching students starts with challenging them in ways that haven’t been before. One way he did this was by creating The Oiler 10, a student-run consulting agency. From this, he learned that teaching can go beyond the typical structure within higher education.
