One example of an event related to Alamo Institutes/Experiential Learning is the Dining Etiquette Luncheon. The Northeast Lakeview College, Career Engaged Learning Office supports career development and experiential learning by hosting the Dining Etiquette Luncheon.

Students are guided through a three-course meal with a formal place setting, while offered instruction on proper greetings, networking, contemporary etiquette, and the mechanics of formal dining.

This guided experience provides an opportunity for students to learn common protocols of dining etiquette, to enhance their professional image, helping to equip students with the social capital to navigate situations, in which knowledge of formal dining is essential, particularly during professional meetings and conferences.

The Career Engaged Learning Office works with faculty in the business and speech departments, in addition to the Office of Student Life, to promote this event to targeted groups of students. The targeted population for this event are students with pre-majors in the Business & Entrepreneurship Institute, students enrolled in the course, Business & Professional Communication, and members of the Male Excellence Network.

The learning outcome of the event is intended for students to report an increased confidence in professional networking and increased confidence in navigating a formal meal. Related to experiential learning, a reflective component allows students to elaborate on how they could apply the acquired knowledge in future career settings.

Applied Learning Experiences (ALEs) are academic, and non-academic, transformative learning experiences designed to engage students in active and reflective learning to further develop beyond-disciplinary skills and expand students’ perspectives of self, community, and global environments.

With the guidance and mentoring of faculty and staff, students will think critically and articulate the broader impact of these activities, and learn to articulate the value of their experiences. The result will be a distinctive collegiate experience that prepares the student for life beyond college. The Applied Learning Experiences (ALE) categories are: Service Learning, Scholarly Activity, Internship/Practicum, Leadership, Discipline Knowledge, Cultural Enrichment

By successfully completing at least three of these approved activities across at least two categories, students will earn an ALE cord to wear at graduation.

0.0 stars

The Ascender program began at Austin Community College in 2015. The mission of the program is to increase the educational attainment of Latinx students and other underserved communities in order to close equity gaps. That is, the Ascender program seeks to move ACC from a Hispanic serving institution to a Hispanic graduating institution by accelerating Latinx students, who are overrepresented in developmental education, to college-level coursework, and providing a structure of support to increase persistence and graduation. Ascender provides students with the academic, social, and leadership opportunities they need to graduate from community college, transfer and earn bachelor's degrees, and return to the community as leaders and mentors. The Ascender program is structured as a first-year experience program that provides wrap-around services including academic, student success, and community engagement components. Familia is at the heart of each component of the program. For instance, students move through their coursework as a learning community, developing affective and social bonds that ease their transition to college. In addition to the learning communities that provide support in academic coursework, Ascender hosts events, such as the Noche de Familia (family night), field trips to colleges/universities, motivational conferences, and other cultural events to further cohere the sense of belonging students feel at ACC. Because many Ascender students are first-generation college students, Ascender provides one-on-one mentoring through a volunteer mentoring program designed to introduce students to a network of role models and coaches that helps guide their first-year college experience. The network of Ascender mentors helps to facilitate greater navigation of sometimes challenging institutional structures.

Best Achievement Strategies for College (BASC)

Rating
0.0 stars

Best Achievement Strategies for College (BASC) is a system-wide, university orientation course created to encourage traditional and non-traditional students to persist to degree completion. The class focuses on three elements: the development of a growth mindset, the early identification of a major and career, and the hands-on involvement in service learning. BASC is offered face-to-face on the residential campus, each external campus and online, each with a slightly different student population. The course is designed to assist and empower first-year learners with strategies and information to support the successful launch of their college career. Faculty from each academic school on the Plainview campus offer discipline-specific sections of the course, allowing students to make connections with faculty in their primary area of study while receiving information and success strategies specific to that major and profession. Throughout the semester, students learn about growth mindset, and receive information about student services, the writing center, the library, tutoring, and health and wellness, as well as strategies such as time and financial management, study skills, note taking, and learning styles. Students explore their interests, skills, and career goals upon choosing a major and are assisted one-on-one with registering for classes for their second semester. Members of the BASC course also participate in a service-learning project that ties discipline-specific activities to community service. The Best Academic Strategies for College (BASC) course is designed to make the transition to college a little less stressful by making information, strategies, and services readily available.
