It’s the first anniversary of MyExperience on campus! I’m writing to provide an overview of the initiative, celebrate the successes we’ve achieved, thank you for your support, and encourage anyone who has not yet had a chance to partner with us to consider how they might join us as we continue to build this exciting initiative.
The initiative, along with the associated position of Experiential Education Advisor, was recently merged into Career Bridge: Center for Work-Integrated Learning and Career Development. MyExperience supports the transition from academic experiences to a professional career by offering students a way to search, register, and track experiential learning.
What is MyExperience?
Launched in September 2019, the MyExperience platform provides a central repository for all experiential learning opportunities across campus (curricular, co-curricular, and extra-curricular). Students can search this database and sign up for a broad range of experiential learning opportunities to help them advance their careers.
What is the MyExperience Transcript?
The development of the MyExperience platform has an end goal of providing students with an experiential record, or MyExperience Transcript (MET). As an official record of a student’s curricular, co-curricular, and extra-curricular experiential learning, the MET is a supplement to the academic transcript that reflects a student’s complete University experience.
What is reflected on the MyExperience Transcript?
The MyExperience Transcript reflects the experiential learning opportunities in which a student has participated during the completion of their degree. Experiential learning opportunities may take place on or off campus, are tied to competencies, and cover a range of categories, including:
Mentor, Tutor, ULSU/GSA Execs + GA, Resident’s Assistant
- Globalization, Research, Creativity & Innovation
Research Assistantship, International Exchange, Agility Trailblazing Cohort, Project Sandbox
- Work-Integrated Learning
Co-Op, Applied Study, New Media Internship
- Community Service
uVolunteer (Volunteer Lethbridge)
- Career-Related Skills Development
Events, Workshops, Trainings
Since September 2019, there have been 1,984 students with at least 1 validated experience in the platform.
