It can be a significant learning experience for students to have the opportunity to meet and interact with experts, but frequently the expert resides at a considerable distance from the institution. There are a variety of ways to bring distance expertise into the classroom, whether that classroom is virtual or brick-and-mortar. This panel brings together three outstanding faculty, representing three different institutions, who have used the same visitor-at-a-distance to enhance their different classes. The different technologies, approaches and goals for student learning outcomes from the use of outside expertise will be the focus of this panel.
