Bridging academic and employability skills to educate the next generation of citizen scholars
Students that participate in the FUSION curriculum will have the opportunity to:
- Receive up to 10-hours of CCR credit to enhance your resume and career portfolio,
- Articulate skills in ways that demonstrate how you can contribute to a positive academic and workplace culture
- Develop and incorporate communication, problem-solving and metacognition as highlighted skills on your resume and career portfolio
- Maximize skill set by taking risks, getting feedback and continuing to improve your skills
- Engage in potential cross-collaborative network work-integrated-learning initiatives
For the fall term, students from the Internship-Carleton University Research Experience for Undergraduate Students (I-CUREUS), Students as Partners Program (SaPP), the Co-op program, ACT to Employ, the Enriched Support Program/ Indigenous Enriched Support Program (ESP/IESP), the Afro-Caribbean Mentorship Program (ACMP), the Mentorship Network, Center for Student Academic Support (CSAS) and the Science Student Success Centre (SSSC) who successfully complete all six modules will receive a $150 honorarium and CCR credits. Students who complete the six modules as part of a credited course are eligible to receive CCR credits.
Although designed as a self-learning online resource, FUSION students can participate in additional programming. In collaboration with Career Services, TLS, SEO and other units on campus, Carleton offers additional workshops, drop-in sessions and career portfolio support to enhance student recognition and articulation of your skills.
“Overall, I highly recommend participating in this program to help build your career portfolio for future employment and further develop your transferrable skills. I personally enjoyed the workbook prompts because it encouraged me to self-reflect on my skills while thinking of manageable steps to further improve them as well. Thank you again for building this informative and valuable course for us!” -Kristal Mae P.
Students from FUSION Partnering Programs: Students from local partnering programs are enrolled in a FUSION skill-development course on Brightspace facilitated by the FUSION Project Officer. Classes are offered in the fall and winter terms. The FUSION course is currently open to graduate co-op students and undergraduates that have completed the COOP 1000 course and are going to start a co-op placement in the fall term, those registered in the Act to Employ Program that will start a work experience in the fall, and those that registered in fall 2021 I-CUREUS and SaPP programs. In 2021, students working as mentors, coaches or workshop facilitators in the ESP/IESP programs are also welcome to register for the FUSION course.
Students from regular courses: Any Carleton student can participate in the FUSION curriculum if they are registered in a course that is using FUSION as part of its experiential learning component.
Act to Employ, ESP/IESP, and Co-op students: The deadline to participate in the FUSION project for the fall term is Oct. 25.
I-CUREUS and SaPP: FUSION is optional for I-CUREUS and SaPP students, and they can choose to participate when registering for the program. For more information, please view the I-CUREUS and SaPP program page.
