Although university courses provide several opportunities to develop competencies, students often struggle with connecting academic experiences to career decisions. Laurier’s Career-Integrated Learning (CIL) program, offered in 139 courses/sections in multiple disciplines over the past three years, explores career competencies developed inside the classroom. Using Laurier’s competency framework, students learn how to identify, reflect and connect in-class experiences to career development.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Gain insights into the creation and delivery of CIL
  • Understand program successes and strategies to confront challenges
  • Identify practices for designing classroom activities that support competency development
