In the spring of 2013, students in a course called Markets, Innovation, and Design 300 created websites for local organizations.  This project was developed by Professors Doug Allen and Joe Meiser to offer students a real world learning experience in the application of design strategies and marketing theory to create value for clients.  Professors Allen and Meiser first decided to co-teach this course together during a BIG meeting, and the active learning provided in this project and focus on innovation are certainly consistent with the mission of BIG.  The Daily Item, a local newspaper, wrote an article on the project that is included below.
