Internship Success Stories

Gabrielle Johnson"Gaining a career in the broadcasting field is very competitive in this day and age; so having experience in the field, along with a major in communications, is very important. With help from the U of M career services department I was able to obtain an internship with WREG-news channel 3. Through this internship I will learn hands-on the different aspects of news media (on camera and off). Learning these aspects of the business can produce great success in my career later on in life. I am very blessed to have this opportunity and to live up to the tiger motto. Dreamers.Thinkers.Doers."

—Gabrielle Johnson

Principles of Good Practice

The National Society for Experiential Education (NSEE), a professional association for practitioners of experiential learning, has developed the following set of guidelines referred to as "Principles of Good Practice."

Intention - Determine what specific learning is intended as a result of the experience.

Clarity - Communicate goals, protocols and procedures among all stakeholders.

Monitoring and Assessment - Establish processes that define each person's role, expected outcomes, and evaluation measures.

Reflection - Analyze activities and learning against the outcome measures established at the beginning of the experience.

Evaluation - Clarify the evaluation role of student, faculty, and site supervisor.

Acknowledgement - Celebrate the experiential learning experience.
