The Colonial Academic Alliance works with our member institutions and partner organizations to identify and publicize opportunities for faculty and staff professional development. Several new initiatives were recently announced:
Work-Integrated Learning Assessment Workshop
Educators from any school interested in creating or augmenting its work-integrated learning offerings (internship, cooperative education, or flexible-work arrangement) are encouraged to attend the September 11 pre-conference workshop at Drexel University’s Annual Conference on Teaching & Learning Assessment. This hands-on experience will allow participants to link theory with practice and to grapple with real-world implementation choices. Internationally recognized facilitators will use sample data and scenarios from the Steinbright Career Development Center to engage participants in real-world discussions as they move into the rich and growing potential of work-integrated integrated learning. We recommend that schools send teams of at least three to facilitate post-conference planning and implementation. Attendees are strongly encouraged to register for the full day experience, though half-day sessions are available.
