Curriculum delivery is becoming increasingly restricted in an era of elevating expectations and declining budgets. As a result, innovative approaches to curriculum delivery are harder to implement though changing student dynamics make them ever more necessary. This article will discuss the differences between the collaborative style of teaching and the dusty old lecture notes by tracking one faculty member's evolution toward a new immersive experience for students. In discussing his evolving teaching philosophy and exploring how it came alive in the new curriculum, this article features how one "old, and distinguished dog" learned some new tricks.
