Experiential Learning and Degree Works:
Working Together to Help Create Experiences for a Lifetime
The Experiential Learning graduation requirement at Purdue University Calumet is an important aspect of a students’ plan of study, and is now conveniently linked to the Degree Works application. This requirement consists of two courses and is listed under the major block within a student audit in Degree Works. Also within each major block, students and advisors are able to view degree requirements based on the current academic year. As shown in the gray block in example one below, valuable information such as credit required, credits applied, and grade point averages are also listed with this major block.
As outlined in the examples below, the Experiential Learning course requirements are listed below the major block section of the student audit. In example one, this student’s audit shows that the required Experiential Learning courses are still needed. As this student completes the Experiential Learning course requirements, the completed courses will appear in his audit, as shown in example two. When both Experiential Learning course requirements have been met, the radio button next to the Experiential Learning courses will be checked as complete.
The addition of the Experiential Learning course requirements to the Degree Works audit is a valuable component that allows both students and advisors alike to review the fulfillment status of this real-world requisite.
