Having trouble figuring out what you're good at and what you enjoy? Is setting goals or figuring out what skills to build and how challenging? We get it! To help you get to know and develop yourself better, co-op students, prospective students and all members of the U of T community have access the University's Experiential Learning Hub, which offers a variety of resources and training modules, including:

  • Understanding your strengths, values, and interests

  • Setting goals for experiential learning

  • Developing a personal learning plan for competency development

The insight gained from what you learn through this tool are an excellent complement to what you learn and practice in co-op as you work on securing your work terms!
