Description

The Pilon School of Business Bachelor of Business Administration program was designed to ensure graduates acquire the ability to apply a range of business frameworks, critical employability, and 21st-century skills to better prepare them to meaningfully contribute and add value to the organizations and communities they serve. With this in mind, the Introduction to Creative Learning Portfolio and the Advanced Creative Learning Portfolio courses were introduced as a requirement to graduate. They provide students with the opportunity to assess, reflect on, and build learning skills and competencies such as critical thinking, collaboration, and agility and adaptability. This helps students make sense of their own experiences and gain an appreciation for their development as learners and future business professionals.

As part of a continual process improvement with the Creative Learning Portfolio model, faculty and students determined that fundamental learning skills and a formalized, intentional process of developing the 21st Century skills would set students up for success. Rebranded as the Undergrad Competencies, the development of these skills is weaved into courses and programs. Supporting the competency development and introducing a process of reflection are three new courses that replace the existing Creative Learning Portfolio courses: Becoming a Master Learner, Undergrad Competency Development, and BBA Portfolios.

Hear from Professor Marcie Theoret about her journey facilitating these courses and her passion and dedication to providing students with transformative learning opportunities. Then interact directly with a panel of BBA students who have embraced this learning experience and will share their reflections.
