In our upcoming Mindset in Motion episode, Bill is joined by Jan Basso, Assistant Vice-President: Experiential Learning & Career Development at Wilfrid Laurier University, and Katherine St. Louis, Associate Director, Resources and Operations in Experiential Learning and Career Development, also at Wilfrid Laurier University, who guide Mindset through the evolution of the Laurier Experience platform.
Join us as we provide an expert-articulated account of the development, adaptation, and measurement of one of Canada’s largest curricular and co-curricular programs, and learn a thing or two about how to successfully deliver institutional commitments to students along the way.
