Course Descripton: This course allows students to gain real-world experience related to their course of study. The course revolves around completing a single class project requested by an actual organizational “client.” Students integrate the skills and knowledge learned through their academic experiences and participate in focused online discussions, culminating in a final project that will be presented to the organization.
INTERNSHIP PROJECT REQUIREMENT: The Project Based Internship enables students to have a meaningful experiential learning opportunity without having to be onsite. Students will not physically visit the internship site but instead will conduct all research and project activities within the parameters of the online classroom.
Assignment: (500 word minimum)
Kouzes and Posner (2012) argue that, “Improvement comes when you engage in conscious introspection. This requires you to reflect on your past, attend to the present, prospect the future, and feel your passion.” Reflect on your where you want to grow and the strengths you want to further develop over the next year in regard to what you have learned in this class while keeping in mind your future career aspirations. What are 2-3 specific goals that you will set to better utilize your strengths and one way in which you want to grow in a needed area of improvement? Please be sure to reference a research site to support your response.
