2A - Co-op 2.0: It’s the Evolution (nor revolution) of Co-op

Evolution of Co-operative Education
Monday Jul 30   11:30 AM to 12:25 PM (55 minutes)

In the spring of 2016, a project group from Co-op at the University of Waterloo was tasked with taking a critical look at opportunities to evolve co-op in a meaningful way. The result? An enhanced focus on four themes, and the commitment to implement two new initiatives for fall 2018: Flexible Work Terms and Co-op Research Certificates. Learn more about Co-op 2.0’s deliverables and what this means for a student’s co-op experience.

 Learning Outcomes

  • Gain an understanding of incorporating evolution into current processes and practices.
  • Recognize the importance of change management and the impact it plays on evolutionary success.
  • Think critically about opportunities at their own institutions and engage with colleagues regarding those opportunities.
