We've talked a lot about student-led and student-designed learning experiences. Students get a lot more breadth and depth out of their learning when they have agency and responsibility, as well as real-world connection. If students chose topics to be experts about and then partnered with teachers or faculty to design a field trip, guest visitor, or skype-session with a subject matter expert, students would learn more deeply about their topic and also learn about the mechanics of designing an experience for their peers. The responsibility of bringing the topic more tangibly to their peers would spark a lot of creativity and learning within the students.
