Maximizing Student Success: Leaning into Undergraduate Internship Challenges

The question is not if an undergraduate student will encounter a challenge in an internship placement, but rather how they will lean into that adaptive trial where there are no easy answers. This session will focus on a successful partnership between the University of Minnesota and the Academic Internship Council where students enroll in an 8-week, 3-credit course that includes a 6-week internship in NYC. This innovative program model leverages technology platforms such as Moodle, Flipgrid, and online discussion forums to support students in pre-departure expectation setting, onsite challenges, as well as unpacking the experience following their return to campus.
