EE is an approach to learning that bridges theory and practice by providing students with opportunities for concrete, applied, practical experience and helps them reflect on this experience using theory and what they have learnt in the classroom. Incorporating reflection as a planned activity allows the students to actively reflect on their experiences and critically examine their assumptions.
Why incorporating EE? “Tell Me and I Will Forget; Show Me and I May Remember; Involve Me and I Will Understand” (Confucius, 450BC). Through EE, students and faculty are better connected with the rapid changing business environment, and the students’ involvement is at a much deeper level.
There are three different major types of EE activities with different subcategories: classroom focused (inside and outside the classroom), community focused (community-based learning, community service learning, and community-based research) and work focused (placements, internships, co-ops).
There are several ways to identify organizations for EE opportunities, like LinkedIn and Riipen.
