Each college was asked to showcase one thing they did with their Perkins funds this past year. The video is supposed to describe the problem they faced, what action they did to overcome the problem, whether the action solved the problem, who benefitted from this action, other outcomes, and what they would do differently next time. These promising practice videos are shared with the other colleges, so they can be inspired and learn from their colleagues.
