Developing Quality Student Experiences

  • As part of an experiential learning work experience, a quality work activity should focus on projects that are specifically related to the academic major/degree that the student is aspiring to achieve.  Because many of our students currently hold part-time jobs, it is important for the work experience to differ from the job by offering extensive opportunities to link classroom learning with workplace experience.

  • By developing an effective project description for the work opportunity that is being offered, collaborative efforts are solidified between the university, the community partner, and the student.
