Team Redesign Assignment (Outline) 1. Introduction -Question 2. Current state 3. List of Alternatives - Alternative 1 - Alternative 2 - Alternative 3 4. Explanation of chosen alternative 5. Implementation and Conclusion Management 355 Creativity and Innovation Team Design Assignment #1 Vanessa Pelinkovic Michael Huizar Intro Redesign the college education experience. What elements would you change? How would you change them? Question... Why spend the money and time when everything can be completed from home? Why not get real world experience? Current State Colleges here in America will provide students with all the skills almost every job requires; however after the final exam students will never need to know what they spent an entire semester learning ever again. Many people will argue that colleges make you take the different general education courses to “enrich” our lives for the real world and not just for our jobs. An experiment was taken by educational psychologists that wanted to search for the “hidden benefits” of the vast courses students took throughout their college careers. Unfortunately, when putting students to the test, their abilities to apply the knowledge they have learned and studied for months was extremely low. List of Alternatives 1. Students should work in companies/have hands on experiences that will apply credits towards their graduation. Reason – Every job or company is different and uses a variety of systems. This will give more exposure for students to the real world. 2. More online classes should be available, less on-campus visits Reason – Having accessibility anywhere you go will save students and colleges more time and money. 3 Students should pay lower amounts per class/credit Reason - If students spend less time on campus and spending time at corporate offices then the cost to maintain building should be lower which can help the cost per credit to lower. Our Chosen Alternative We believe it is more important for students to have more hands on experiences/internships, than it is for students to take a variety of general education courses. Explanation of Chosen Alternative Our idea is that instead of taking classes not at all related to your major, applying for different companies you are planning on majoring, during your first and second year, will substitute for all credits/general education courses. 1. 2. Doing this will count for real world experiences that will help students for their future careers in the long run. This will also help students decide whether they want to continue pursuing their desired career Ex: Maybe you think you want to be an accountant? You start your days working for the companies and after that “semester” ends you realize you absolutely hate working at a desk all day. You can immediately change your major AND receive credit for the time you spent working there. Now you have a real world experience whilst getting your degree. Implementation and Conclusion We believe that allowing students to go out in the workforce is only positively impacting their lives in many ways. This is a great way for students to take a mini glimpse into their future, to see if it is really for them. They are able to visualize real life experience, gaining proper knowledge and fundamentals on how to have a real career. They are saving time being able to switch up their majors immediately if they realize it is not for them. Taking this route into all college universities will better students responsibility and leadership roles in many ways. Questions? Comments? ...

Students Name




Redesigning College Education
An individual who has attained a college degree tends to get better employment
positions and high salaries as compared to a high school graduate. However, in the recent
past, the value of college degree has continued to diminish due to the limited professional
skills or real-world experience acquired by the students. There is a need for colleges to
provide the students with more professional skills or experience for them to be familiar with
what is expected of them in the job market. This change can be brought a bought by allowing
the students to spend much of their college time attached to various company’s or institutions
for them to gain the working experience (Turner,2009). The main question is why should the
students spend more of their college time in class instead of spending much time getting the
real world experience?
