While Cornell College’s campus may seem timeless, inside its historic buildings faculty innovation keeps the Cornell experience vibrant.
Cornell faculty are national and international leaders in applying new techniques and technologies to create new learning experiences. Students read about an ancient city, then they create a map of it … in ancient Greek. Students study a business case, then they work with partner firms to solve it. Students look at photos of Mexican pottery excavated from tombs, then they reproduce both the artifacts and the tombs in 3D.
We caught up with five faculty innovators to see how their teaching has evolved to ensure that Cornell College continues to create new ways to change lives.
