As part of the NetVUE Program Grant, two workshops were held on August 20 and 21st.
The purpose of the workshops was to help faculty design modules or IDS courses that incorporate the exploration of vocation.
The practical series of workshops had a two-fold purpose: (1) to gain concrete tools for incorporating vocational exploration into Benedictine classes, and (2) to build a custom-fit paradigm for how Benedictine students will fulfill the new Learning Communities requirement.
Special sessions for Admissions Staff and First-year Advisors were included in day two.
Prof. Carter Aikin of Blackburn College is a 10-year veteran of undergraduate vocation programs and a national campus consultant for the Network for Vocation in Undergraduate Education (NetVUE).
