One response to “experiential learning, indeed!

  • Joe W

    As almost a prerequisite for entry into the professional world, it would seem that universities are at worst complicit with businiess in the exploitation of interns, or atleast to overwhelmed to ensure compliance or provide students a safe, rewarding experience. The author mentions one alternative…”cooperative education.” I would have liked to have seen a bit more on this alternative rather than a brief mention. We have talked about this alternative in class from Byron’s experience, to Greg’s research. Although resource intensive, my assessment is the “co-op model” has the most potential to benefit the student.
