Applied Learning Guide

Applied Learning: A Guide for Planning, Implementation, and Assessment (Spring 2019):
The purpose of this Guide is to give tools to develop and implement Applied Learning experiences which will satisfy the Applied Learning Graduation Requirement. This Guide applies primarily to Internships and experiences overseen and facilitated by FSC. The Appendix to the Guide includes forms/templates, including for site evaluations, learning agreements, student and supervisor evaluations and timesheets.


How do I get my course approved?

All existing courses that include applied activities but not a change of course content or objectives may be submitted directly for review by FSC’s Applied Learning Review Board through the Axiom Mentor Application System.

The approval process will collect information regarding how many hours will be invested in applied activity as well as a brief description of how the criteria for applied learning are met. Faculty submitting a course for approval will also be required to briefly outline a plan for collecting data regarding student reaction and data regarding achievement of learning objectives associated with the applied learning activity.

If a completely new course is to be created, or extensive change to an existing course is required, a formal curriculum change proposal (CCP) must be submitted. Once the CCP process is complete, the course will need to follow the submission guidelines explained above for approval of the applied learning activity. 

For questions regarding the Applied Learning Review process please email Jenny Bryer at bryerj@farmingdale.edu
