Offering a student employment experience that contributes to students’ academic and career success is a win-win for campus employers and students. How is your program supporting student career preparedness? Are your students acquiring the skills needed to be successful during their time on campus and beyond? How do you know? How do you find out? Come away from this workshop with practical knowledge and skills to help design a “learner centered” employment program by applying assessment methods to measure learning outcomes and learner effectiveness.
