Skills and Knowledge to Help You Succeed in Experiential Learning
The Senior Research Seminar asks UHL seniors to join into teams in order to address an important and influential issue present in higher education. Josh Murphy, Alexandra Schumacher, Ansley Smith, and Jeremy Gee are together researching the benefits of experiential learning at the university. They are attempting to implement a UHL requirement for such a learning experience (i.e., an internship or study abroad). To further this goal, they have organized and conducted various workshops for UHLers, geared toward increasing the students’ professionalism and knowledge of business etiquette and expectations.
On Friday, March 2nd, they held their first workshop, which addressed professionalism. Wadi Muhaisen, Esquire, led the discussion and advised UHL students on the skills they need in the professional world. The topics discussed and questions asked were diverse and informative, and the UHL students who attended came away with a more solid and useful knowledge of the professional world that awaits them outside of the university.
