Is the course required or an elective for a Curriculum?
No
This course provides an opportunity for students to gain practical leadership skills and knowledge that will be transferrable to the student's academic and career goals. A minimum of 150 hours over the equivalence of a semester period will receive three credit hours for the experience. The student is responsible for arranging the internship experience. The Coordinator for Shelton Leadership Courses (SLC) will need to approve the experience prior to the start date. To gain approval, a student must submit the completed SLC 450 contract and have it approved by his/her internship experience supervisor, academic advisor and the SLC 450 coordinator. In addition to the work described in the contract, a student will complete a series of reflective assignments related to the experience.

This course is to provide students associated with the Shelton Leadership Academic Programs or other NC State students desiring to analyze, evaluate and articulate applied leadership experiences through critical thinking and reflecting on the connection to career aspirations and academic curriculum, for credit.

Written Assignment20%The first assignment is due prior to initiating the experience. Students will be asked to describe, in detail, the framework of the learning experience and the student’s expectations for that applied practical leadership experience.
Written Assignment30%The second assignment is due half way through the experience. Students will be asked to provide a reflective paper on knowledge and skills gained or deepened during the experience, as well as, how the student’s academic studies relate to the learning experience, and what needs to be changed or improved before the experience concludes.

o Examining the experience with a reflection component about what the student learned from the experience (who, what, where, when, how, and why).
o Articulating how the student has developed leadership skills and knowledge that is transferrable to their academics, personal and professional, influenced by the experience.
o The video should be a documentary of the experience (i.e., contain footage of the student participating in the experience, and demonstrating new skills learned etc...).
o If the organization offering the internship prohibits photography or videography, the student must provide documentation of that restriction from the organization and can create a narrated PowerPoint presentation using stock photos instead of demonstrating a new skill, etc. The video should be well organized and of high audio and video quality, using Mediasite or other similar software approved by the Coordinator.
