Benjamin, Mimi; Davis, Laura
Journal of College and University Student Housing, v42 n3 p12-25 2016
Employment can enhance learning for many college students, and on-campus jobs provide unique opportunities for this experience. The resident advisor position is one on-campus position offering the potential for learning experiences. This qualitative study highlights learning noted by 78 resident advisors at a large research institution during a two-year study. Five primary learning outcomes that were salient for the participants are shared along with implications for attending to resident advisor learning. [Discussion questions prepared by Rachel Adams and James Devlin.]
