Faculty Engagement in Co-op Competency-Based Learning
Lindsay Wood (author)
The objective of this research study was for the university to benefit from an enhanced educational and learning-based co-op program that is in alignment with its strategic vision. The Co-Op department would be better equipped to facilitate programs that maximize student learning and be in a position to communicate the educational value of co-op and its significance to institutional plans. Finally, my hope for the research was to engage and inspire Co-Op faculty at KPU to make enhancements to the program that enabled student learning and program growth and considered the supports and resources they require to feel engaged. The question this raised for the KPU Co-Op program was: How can the Centre for Cooperative Education and Career Services engage Co-Op faculty in contributing to the long-term success of a competency-based learning model in Cooperative Education at Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU)?
