  • 11. Part III- Feedback
  • 12. What Worked Giving students the opportunity to do their career development using formats that they are comfortable with- notably online and in their own time frames Lessens the burdens of the career centers because of the delivery of the training to all the students with one format Gives students an early start on addressing these issues and helps them plan their studies and course accordingly Improvement Delivery of the system would need a lot of software design work How can you design a platform that can be used by any school yet can be modified for that specific institution. The online coaching needs to be worked out better for both sides. Students need to both asynchronous and synchronous online interaction Career counselors need to manage time spent with students. There is no mechanism in this prototype that solves this. Ideas? Schools willing to flex more on course requirements and offerings so that students can do both- take courses that are “ broadening” liberal arts type course and more practical, like “accounting” Schools offer more internship semesters that give students the opportunity to develop necessary job expereince and skill that the academics can’t provide Questions? Engage students as freshmen when they can’t see as far ahead as graduation? How you get students to discover what they really want to do before it is too late? How can career centers to work more closely with faculty to help student design course work that is relevant? How can you prevent uproar from departments that have majors with no clear relevance to getting jobs in the future? How can you get schools to buy this product? ( Is that a good question?) One student and one professor
