The Career Fair Project: A Ten Year Experiment in Performance-Based Learning
Stewart, Vicki
College Quarterly, v8 n4 Fall 2005
This article summarizes my experiences in developing an educational initiative known as the Career Fair Project within the curriculum of the Legal Administration/Law Clerk program at Durham College over the past ten years. A performance-based, student-centered project, the Career Fair empowers students to work collaboratively with one another in order to gain employment within their chosen field. In this article, I discuss the rationale and structure of the course, as well as the outcomes of the project, and methods of evaluation. I also discuss numerous problems that I have encountered along the way, and theorize potential solutions in hopes that this information might be helpful to other educators who wish to develop similar performance-based projects within a college environment.
