 ELT Workshop Logo SizedAttendance at an ELT Workshop is required of all students who seek the Minor in Community Leadership and have completed LDR 3003 (Introduction to Leadership). This one-hour workshop, facilitated by Dr. John Frank, will teach you the meaning of "reflective practice" and how to properly utilize UNF's unique online tool called the Experiential Learning Transcript (ELT) to chronicle and unpack your leadership learning outcomes from diverse co-curricular experiences outside the classroom. These include on-campus and off-campus activities and personal family-life events, and can make reference to employment, service, community engagement, study abroad, and other forms of experiential learning. 

Submitting entries on the ELT is a requirement to attain the Minor in Community Leadership and builds the student's unique and personal leadership repertoire of reflected leadership practice, paving the way for successful completion of the final course in the Minor, LDR 4263 - Practicum in Community Leadership, and the presentation of one's Senior Leadership Capstone. In effect, the "practicum" is the composite of all your reflected leadership learnings across all your experiences during the tenure of your time at UNF. The ELT might be described as a reflective journal that documents how the student has distinguished herself/himself in the practice of leadership.
