Webinar: Working, Earning, Learning, Growing – Why and How to Do Learning-Focused Student Employment
July 28 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am EDT
As institutions invested in supporting learning, how can we more intentionally foster the learning of the learners who work for us—whether part-time student staff or interns?
In this interactive webinar we’ll explore why we should approach student employment as part of our educational mission, and the benefits that accrue to both us and our part-time or temporary staff as a result of providing them with more than just a paycheck and some undefined “experience.”
We’ll also investigate a range of ways in which to implement a more learning-oriented approach to student employment, from no muss, no fuss tweaks that can be made immediately, to larger, more programmatic interventions.
You’ll leave the webinar with a handful of guiding principles for approaching student employment from a learning perspective, and developing more valuable and rewarding student work experiences in your organization.
