Integrating Academic and Career Development Toolkit

Four tools to develop experiential learning opportunities, encourage reflection, and enable assessment

Explore this toolkit for four resources to develop experiential learning opportunities, encourage reflection, and enable assessment.

To give students an opportunity to test their early career interests and demonstrate skills and competencies gained in the classroom in a real-world setting, many institutions are developing experiential learning programs. Unfortunately, career services offices can struggle to manage and assess these opportunities as they expand and faculty, often unfamiliar with their design or unsure of their impact on student learning, can hesitate to develop them.

This toolkit will help guide your career services and faculty members through the design, implementation, and monitoring of effective experiential learning opportunities including reflection techniques to identify skills applied and gained during the experience. Determine the best fit experiential learning program for your campus with a collection of literature on the impact, cost, scalability, and other features of different types of experiential learning (e.g., study abroad, service-learning). This toolkit is part of the study Integrating Academic and Career Development.
