Buck and Barrick (1987) state that employers are looking for a “sense of responsibility, self-discipline, pride, teamwork and enthusiasm … the ability to learrt and solve problems” (np), and that schools are not sufficiently developing these attitudes, abilities and skills. Experiential Learning Today’s world of work is constantly changing and is therefore somewhat unpredictable (Laanan, 1995). The new workplace eliminates the need for programs focused only on job skill acquisition; instead, the ability to connect knowledge to context is key (Lankard, 1996b) Rationale for Current Study.
