If you have a question about this talk, please contact Lucian Stephenson.

This seminar presents student experiences during a semester long internship journey where self-reflections on teaching, leadership, professional identity, future ‘ self’ and strategies for bridging the gap between theory and practice are all discussed. Student stories paint a picture of a future professional and reveal new perspectives to better inform the successful transition to work. Results show that students move through multiple domains of identity during the internship and the curation of evidence (and the accompanying narrative) presented in their portfolio fosters experiential learning outcomes. Therefore, reorienting learning for career relevance is important to enable the development of essential, transferable skills such as leadership, communication, teamwork, workplace negotiation and problem solving.
