Fall 2016 Students: Do you want to receive credit for your fall internship?

Are you looking for an internship course and your major does not offer one?

Have you completed the internship course in your major? 

Register for INT89a: 2 credits, Tuesdays 5:00-6:20.  Contact Instructor for consent code, acanelli@brandeis.edu

The purpose of this course is to help students to think critically about the organization and industry in which they are currently interning, while developing and articulating their “personal narrative” as a result of this experience. While the internship is the “lab,” students will use their assignments, reflections and class meetings to analyze their experience to both develop and articulate their academic, professional, and personal goals.

Experiential Learning and Teaching

The mission of Experiential Learning and Teaching at Brandeis is to help students learn from their experiences and to create experiences from which students will learn. We create deep, reflective and transferable learning outcomes by partnering with both faculty and students.

Experiential Learning and Teaching at Brandeis comes in many forms: Community Engaged Learning, EL Practicum Courses, Academic Internship Courses, Labs, Language Classes, Theater and Fine Arts, and many EL Designated Humanities and Science courses. Often, Experiential Learning takes place outside of the classroom and in the field where students apply their knowledge to hands-on experiences. 

But just as often, Experiential Learning and Teaching at Brandeis can be found in a traditional classroom. Through active learning and reflective processes that connect theory to practice and facilitate the synthesis of new ideas,  Brandeis faculty incorporate Experiential Learning Principles into their daily teaching. This innovative pedagogy allows students to broaden, deepen and enrich their relationship to the content/subject matter and gives students the opportunities to actively apply and connect their learning to their own life experiences.
