TOPIC: “Learning Everywhere: Helping Students Identify, Connect, and Articulate their Skills”
PRESENTER: Dave Merry, Associate Director for Experiential Integration, Northeastern University
DATE: Tuesday, January 28, 2020 @ 1:00 – 2:00 pm EST
DESCRIPTION: Students often talk about their co-ops and internships simply in terms of what they did, instead of how they grew and what skills they developed. It can be difficult to connect those skills to other aspects of their lives, or to articulate them clearly to others. And while a great deal of learning happens in the classroom and workplace, students are often unattuned to valuable learning experiences in their everyday lives. In this webinar we will describe a program at Northeastern University that helps students reflect on their lives holistically and better integrate learning from co-op/internship back into academic and personal spheres by approaching each new experience with an “expert experiential learner” mindset. While we will be describing a unique initiative at Northeastern, we will identify ways to effectively translate these concepts to other campuses and contexts.
