ELT Workshop Logo Sized

Spring Term ELT Workshops (Two sessions available: Thur & Fri, January 12th and 13th)

Thursday, January 12, 2017 - 2017-01-13
Thursday's session is 3-4pm; Friday's session is 1-2pm

Location: Computer Lab in Building 57, Room 2520

Cost: None - Must have completed LDR 3003 and declared Leadership Minor by January 9, 2017


Attendance at an ELT Workshop is required of all students who seek the Leadership Minor and have completed LDR 3003 (Introduction to Leadership).  This one-hour workshop 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. 

The ELT might be described as a reflective journal that documents how the student has distinguished herself/himself in the practice of leadership. Submitting entries on the ELT is a requirement to attain the Leadership Minor 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 - Leadership Practicum and the presentation of one's Senior Leadership Capstone as the primary deliverable of that final course. 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. Students should allow at least two terms of reflection on the ELT prior to enrollment in LDR 4263. Students are required to have a minimum of 12 ELT entries prior to admission to LDR 4263.
