Real Life Inside the Classroom

Dr. Myles Vogel – University Dean of IT, Computer Science, and Engineering

The professional learning model is something that is one of the trademarks for Colorado Technical University.

Dr. Connie Johnson – University Provost and Chief Academic Officer

The professional learning model at CTU integrates real-life situations into the classroom. A student is experiencing situations or problem-solving that would actually occur in the workplace today.

Dr. Emad Rahim – CTU Business Alum and Real-World Faculty Member

Applied approach to learning – a project-based approach.

Dr. Myles Vogel – University Dean of IT, Computer Science, and Engineering

We want to make that project very personal to them that it has really some kind of meaning for them.

Dr. Emad Rahim – CTU Business Alum and Real-World Faculty Member

We’re saying “These are the tools, these are the techniques, and this is how you can apply it.”

Dr. Deborah Telfer – Program Director for Computer Science and Information Technology

By the end, this project would be a portfolio-ready project that they could show a potential employer.

Dr. Myles Vogel – University Dean of IT, Computer Science, and Engineering

So the students in that case get real practical, professional, hands-on application of what they’re learning.
