Riipen for Students
As part of our commitment to providing our students with quality experiential learning opportunities, we are excited to partner with Riipen, the leading experiential learning platform and marketplace for project-based learning. A Riipen project or remote internship is a challenge or opportunity that an organization wants to explore that educators can embed into their course or provide students as a remote internship opportunity. Students then work on the project to provide valuable insights, recommendations and deliverables to the employer.
What is project-based learning and why is it important?
Project-based learning is a teaching method in which students gain knowledge, experience, and skills through the study and resolution of authentic, interesting, and complex issues, problems, or challenges in close collaboration with business or non-profit partners. In order to be successful in the job market after graduation, a student will need experience and contacts, but also employable skills. Here is where experiential learning is advantageous as through meaningful collaborations with employers on projects, a student has the opportunity to apply their knowledge and develop valuable skills through project work, while creating lasting connections that could make all the difference at the end of studies.
To better understand the entire process for in-class project-based engagements and remote internships, Riipen created a learning resource called Riipen Academy. More than just help articles, Riipen Academy will explain what is expected of from students based on best practices and Riipen’s users' experience. From connecting to producing high quality results, a host of topics are presented so that students can get the most out of the experience and the benefits of project-based learning.
