  • Development Approach for Work-Integrated Learning

  • Summary

    What is the single most imperative skill for college graduates entering the work force? How can reflection and assessment aid student growth?

    A survey by The Chronicle of Higher Education and American Public Media’s Marketplace concluded that internship experience is the single most important qualification for college graduates. Bennington College has a unique approach to this proficiency with a required winter “Field Work Term.” During the webinar, you will analyze this unique approach to field work experience and how it impacts student development through employer and self-evaluation. You will also identify the proficiencies students can develop creating a learning portfolio to demonstrate growth across work-related competencies for use post-graduation.

    Following this program, you will be able to:

    • Coordinate career coaching methods with a broad academic advising strategy;
    • Apply work-based competency evaluations to development models; and
    • Integrate a strengths-based self-assessment model into work-integrated learning models.
