In this professional development video from Getting Results, Dr. John Bransford, professor of education at the University of Washington School of Education, as well as instructors and students from an aquarium science class, talk about how to make course content relevant through first-hand experiences with labs and connections to the community. As an example, the instructors bring in an aquarium director as a guest lecturer. The students then conduct an experiment. Afterwards, they go to the aquarium to see the same technology used in a professional context. The video runs 6:05 and is accompanied by a background essay and discussion questions.
