Integrating Global News and Events into the Classroom: Inspiring Students to Engage in Critical Thinking

Through Peregrine’s partnership with Bloomberg Businessweek, our B-School Connection (BSC) Education Resource Center is designed to bridge the gap between business theory and practical application. The Education Resource Center integrates current global news into the classroom and inspires students to engage in critical thinking about events shaping the world today. Academically appropriate for any course and academic level, the service is a cost-effective solution that addresses several accreditation and key stakeholder needs related to instructional quality, global awareness, student engagement, and lifelong learning. This workshop will explore how to bridge the gap between theory and practice in the classroom with the key features and functionalities of this exciting academic service.
