Students change lives through applied learning

A memorandum of agreement signed between Saskatchewan Polytechnic and Habitat for Humanity, Prince George is changing lives through applied learning opportunities. The MOU outlines a goal of having carpentry students build five houses in five years as applied research projects.

 

Throughout the seven-week program, 12 students are responsible for framing and finishing the exterior of a house. “This unique partnership provides students with a tangible, applied learning opportunity. At the end of their program students have work-integrated learning experience and also can feel good about giving back to their community, said says John Erickson, (acting) dean, School of Construction.
