Post EE Activities

Once you have experienced EE, you will want to do two things: reflect on the entire process and what you learned from it, and translate that into concrete assets.

Reflecting on what you have learned:
Go back to the structured reflection tab and look at the visual sketching Kolb's experiential learning cycle again. What have your learned that you can relate back to course content? Has your learning changed you in any way? Now that you know what you know, how will this make a difference in the future?

Translating your learning into tangible skills:
As you have learned in Core Competencies, EE is a great opportunity to develop skills that you can then transfer to other courses and other contexts such as the workplace. Below are resources that can help you articulate your skills to yourself and eventually to potential employers.

The Competency Reflection Guide (PDF download) will help you identify your skills with a concrete situation you encountered, the task you accomplished and the steps you followed to achieve good results.

The Career Centre can help you make translate your EE experience into something that will attract potential employers. Visit their website for advice on resume building and interview skills.

The Faculty of Education offers EDUC 3910 Reflecting on and Interpreting the International Education Experience. The course is open to all students across the university who have completed an international learning experience (e.g., internship, exchange).
