Experiential Learning & Internship
As an intern, the student is assigned tasks and challenges appropriate to a junior employee in a studies-relevant role. The experience provides an opportunity to apply theory and knowledge in a relevant work situation, and it enables the student to integrate their knowledge with actual practice as it applies in the hosting firm. The internship experience is designed to provide the student with practical experience in solving real-world problems. This course is intended for students in selected Commerce and Business Administration programs.
- In consultation with the instructor and work supervisors, students will prepare for their experiential learning in the internship, by:
- Defining the scope of the work to be accomplished,
- Identifying documentation needs and a means of meeting those needs, and
- Identifying how to accomplish the learning outcomes of the course.
**Prior to enrolling in this course, students will work with the Career Centre via the CareerHUB to do all preparatory work. Once the preparatory work is complete, students will enroll in the course, and once in the course, the above items will be addressed.
Students will work with the instructor and/or work supervisor to define the work project, engage in the work, and achieve the learning outcomes of the course.
Assessment will be in accordance with the Douglas College Evaluation Policy. This is a Mastery/Non-Mastery course. To achieve a Mastery grade, the student must demonstrate mastery in the following:
- Pre-work preparation, documentation, and assessment,
- Tracking of work experience,
- Employer feedback and evaluation, with student follow-up on action items,
- Presentation and/or portfolio to summarize learning, and
- As needed, other activities in support of the learning objectives.
The fundamental objectives of this course are to develop the capability:
- To interpret concepts learned in commerce and business courses as they relate to the business environment.
- To examine the workings of business situations, and to analyze the culture of the business world.
- To evaluate jobs in industry and, through this, to align personal career goals.
