Student Employee's Job Title*
IF HIRING AN RA: Will your RA be paid from the department account or from your faculty research account?
Faculty can hire 1 RA to be paid from the general department account. Additional RAs can be hired when paid through faculty's own research accounts. If needed, faculty can contact Brian Cannon to get additional RAs approved through the department account or to get reimbursement from the department to their research accounts. (Please let Alex Allred know if you have received approval for additional RAs).
Will you be mentoring this student employee in a way that qualifies as Experiential Learning?
Experiential learning is a process of learning through experience and reflection and occurs outside the formal classroom. While learning may naturally occur through any given experience, not every experience produces experiential learning. At BYU, four pillars distinguish experiential learning from ordinary or chance experience.
1. Inspiration: Foster opportunities which lead to inspiration or revelation.
2. Intention: Clear learning outcomes are identified or a problem to be solved is clearly defined.
3. Integration: Application of emerging inspiration, knowledge, skills, or dispositions are fostered.
4. Reflection: Periodic, structured opportunities to reflect and integrate learning.
