Details: Please join us for a WatCACE Research Seminar on a series of studies conducted by Judene Pretti and Dave Drewery from the Waterloo Centre for the Advancement of Co-operative Education (WatCACE) in partnership with Robert Sproule from the School of Accounting and Financial Management. The research began with an effort to define the concept of a lifelong learner and then explored two methods (a scale and a rubric) for evaluating lifelong learners in the context of workplace experiences. The most recent phase of the research examined the connection between characteristics of a lifelong learner and success in the workplace, which was examined through workplace evaluations of Accounting and Financial Management co-op students, and by reports of career success (satisfaction, engagement, advancement) of Accounting and Financial Management alumni.
We look forward to sharing our findings with you, and discussing implications and next steps for this research.
Join us in person or via livestream.
