Link co-curricular student experiences with the skills employers want.
Educators who work with students outside the classroom know that co-curricular programs like student government or service learning can help students develop the skills employers want. While these experiences offer tremendous opportunity, without intentional design and assessment their impact will be limited. So, when there is little time to do so, how do we build more intentionally designed co-curricular experiences to further student skill development and measure learning?
Join us for this virtual training for tangible, ready-made solutions to these challenges outlined in the cutting-edge program model our expert speakers have developed, the Co-Curricular Learning Masterplan (CLM). You will identify essential learning outcomes and leave with an assessment tool to build better co-curricular development experiences and demonstrate their value toward student learning.
Who Should Attend
Individuals and teams in student affairs or other areas will benefit from this session, including:
- Experiential Learning and Career Development leaders seeking to better connect out-of-the-classroom learning experiences to essential student learning outcomes
- Student Affairs and Student Success leaders seeking a comprehensive approach to improve co-curricular student learning and ways to assess and demonstrate that learning
