Alumni and other professionals can provide essential learning opportunities and career advice to students (Saunders et al., 2016; Savickas, 2013). There is a need to offer these same learning opportunities in online and hybrid courses (Kaufman et al. 2014). However, incorporating these learning opportunities can lead to challenges for faculty, alumni, and other professionals which can limit students’ learning experience. Presenters will share their experiences in incorporating alumni and public health professionals in a new hybrid project management course. We will share with you how we aligned course objectives with experiences of alumni and public health professionals, and the creation of online content, assessments, and activities. Attendees will draft a plan for application in one of their own course. References: Kaufman, N. J., Castrucci, B. C., Pearsol, J., Leider, J. P., Sellers, K., Kaufman, I. R., ... & Sprague, J. B.
