11B - Blazing a Path for Co-op, Career & Experiential Education

Work Integrated Learning and Experiential Learning
Wednesday Aug 01   10:30 AM to 11:25 AM (55 minutes)
Concordia, John Molson Building (MB) - The Goodman Institute- Suite MB 10.121

Three years ago Brock underwent a major change in their operations bringing together co-operative education and career services with the addition of starting a new department for experiential education. Throughout the last 3 years, the team has gone through different stages of forming, working through challenges, seizing opportunities, finding stability and defining, tracking and measuring success. In a political landscape of government funding for experiential education, conversations of a highly skilled workforce, innovations and industry changes and more funding pots than ever before, our Co-op, Career & Experiential Education (CCEE) department has had to respond to various pressures, both internally and externally to work as a cohesive team with multiple stakeholders and sometimes competing priorities. Come learn how we work through the various nuances of the different departments and at the same time work towards a common goal in a complex, high pressured environment.
