Ursinus students are asked to intentionally reflect before and after their credit internships. Reflecting on experiences helps students to identify specific training and career goals, enhance their awareness of what they are learning and why, and enrich their academic and professional development. The complete reflection process is ongoing and consists of pre, during, and post reflection. Many student supporters, such as faculty, academic advisors and Career and Post-Graduate Development advisors, will assist students in this perpetual cycle of reflection so that the thoughts and lessons that are learned can be used to support life-long learning.
Students will record their pre and post-reflections on their Internship Learning Agreement (ILA). These responses are shared with students’ faculty internship advisors who will encourage additional contemplation and assist students in making connections among their reflections, academic knowledge and their personal and professional goals. Additionally, campus professionals will ask students to include their pre and post-reflections in their Bear Tracks, which is used to document their journey at Ursinus College, while considering how they want to live thoughtfully as human beings and as citizens.
