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 toward their degree in any Carleton University program. Each course offers a 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.

Are you ready to put your knowledge into action through hands-on learning and leadership opportunities?

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the future of work considerably. As companies shift from in person to remote and hybrid workforces, the physical footprint of small businesses and large corporations alike is rapidly changing. The way we work, communicate and network is changing. Expectations for employees and employers are shifting and evolving every day, and students need to be ready to navigate those changes.Working with the Launch: Ideas team will better equip our students for the new future of work.  John Nelson, Acting Director, Innovation Hub.
