Internship Learning Outcomes
We know that internships are a win for both students and employers. Instead of measuring that win simply in terms of the number of students participating in internships, you can develop and assess interns’ learning outcomes. It’s a great way to kick your internship experience up a notch! Developing learning outcomes for the experience provides tangibles to prove the high impact practice to skeptics and confirm to colleagues that an intern will be an asset rather than drain on stressed resources. It can guide the hiring process to ensure you get the candidate(s) you need. In this session we will talk about the benefits of learning outcomes as well as best practices for writing them.

Following this program, you will be able to:

  • Articulate the steps to writing effective learning outcomes that are meaningful and assessable by both employers and colleges;
  • Compose learning outcomes and leave with tools that can be immediately put into practice; and
  • Develop a plan to guide employers in constructing learning outcomes for interns.
