GPSC464 - Spark! Articulate and communicate your skills

This training is to support students to reflect on their experiences outside the classroom, and be better able to articulate their own learning and skills development to their peers, their teachers, and potential employers or graduate schools.

If you have participated in learning experiences outside the classroom (ex: workshops, internships, competitions, research, student leadership, performance, study abroad, etc) but aren’t sure how to express the skills you have gained, then this workshop is for you.

This is an interactive workshop that includes individual and group work, role-play/practice and immediate feedback. The learning and skills developed during the workshop will equip you to articulate your Concordia experience using a new lens, and help you explain the importance of these experiences to your peers, or as you enter the labour market. Coffee/Tea provided.

Learning Objectives

After this workshop, students will be able to:
- Reflect on their experiences (in class, on campus, in their professional experience)
- Articulate skills gained through their experiential learning
- Identify opportunities on campus to engage further
- Express to their peers the value of experiential learning
- Understand how to have their non-course learning recognized on the Co-Curricular Record

Leaders Information

This workshop is led by Alexander Oster.

Alexander Oster is the Coordinator of Student Engagement at the Concordia Dean of Students Office.
