Experiential Learning for Academic Credit at Carleton University

Experiential Learning Projects: Learning Through Doing!

The Sprott School of Business offers multiple courses that Innovation Hub students can enroll in to receive academic credit towards their degree in any Carleton University program. Each course offers practical experience through placement on a real-world client project, designing and delivering a solution, as part of a multi-disciplinary student team. Students will deliver solutions to either for-profit, government, or social-impact focused organizations.

These courses are designed to engage students from all faculties across campus, helping them to learn to understand client needs and design and implement solutions to meet those requirements, leveraging remote-work best practices and gaining vital communication, collaboration,  project management and digital literacy skills essential to their career success.

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the future of work considerably. Major corporations have moved to an entirely remote workforce, while others have significantly reduced the need for in-person work. As part of this shift, teams are employing new remote ways of working to better achieve organizational objectives. While this is important for for-profit organizations, this shift is equally important for those working in non-profits and social enterprises, who often have less funds to work with and must therefore be even more efficient in their use of resources. A fluency with this new way of working, including the use of industry-standard collaboration and communication tools, is essential for students, as they prepare for their futures. Working with the Launch: Ideas team will better equip our students for the new future of work.  Emily Jones Joanisse, Director, Project Delivery, Innovation Hub
