The Berry Informational Technology (B.I.T.S.) Student Work Program: An Effective Environment for Collaborative Learning, Leadership, Technological Training, and Certification.
Cornelius, Amy; Macaluso, Paul
The Berry Informational Technology (B.I.T.S.) program at Berry College (Georgia) is an apprenticeship opportunity associated with student work. The program gives students the opportunity to seek technological training in areas, such as building computer systems, trouble-shooting, networking, Web development, and user and technical support. In addition, students work collaboratively and with faculty and staff in problem solving, attend workshops in management, supervision, and technology, as well as obtain certifications in various areas. Two measures of the program's success are its 90-95% student retention rate and that 24/25 returning students have passed the A+ certification exam. (Author/MES)
