Clickable Colleagues Rick Fenner

How an instructor spends the first day of class can have a lasting impact on student learning. To welcome students to Personal Finance last Friday, Rick decided to throw a retirement party on Day 1 - not for himself, but for his students, where they walked into the classroom and were told, "Congratulations on your retirement!"

Students were asked to imagine themselves on the day of their retirement from Fenner Corporation and required to brainstorm how old they think they are, what path their career followed to get here, and most importantly - what are they doing "tomorrow"?

Fostering financial literacy starts with creating an awareness of what role financial decisions play in an individual's path through life. Starting at the abstract end of this path makes a strong case for the importance of each step along the way, which is precisely where the students and the instructor need to go this semester.
