Experience Your Education - Lander University’s EYE Program
Monday - October 26, 2009
How effective would an education be if it relied solely on textbooks and lectures? Imagine a doctor graduating from medical school without working with actual patients; a teacher earning a degree without spending time with real students; a business graduate entering the workforce without interacting with real clients.To be successful in their careers, students need to enhance their textbook knowledge by applying it in real-world settings and this week four faculty and staff members of Lander University in Greenwood discuss taking a college education beyond classroom walls. The podcast examines the University's Experience Your Education (EYE) program, through which students are immersing themselves in authentic environments, and developing professionalism and self-responsibility while honing their skills of communication, collaboration and problem solving – giving experiential learning participants a competitive advantage over other jobseekers. We hope you can join us on the podcast for this lively, informative discussion!
