Final Summary Report

Guidelines for Preparing WBL Final Summary Report

Be sure you are clear about what your Faculty Advisor requires of you to summarize your work experience.  Does your Advisor require you to do a report, a paper, or produce a product, etc?  For Engineering Technology students, and for many other students, the final step will be a 3-5 page paper, double-spaced, detailing what was learned from this work experience. 

If you have kept an accurate log, you will be a long way toward producing a professional final report.  Remember, work-based learning is an educational experience.  That means that your final summary report must be a college-level paper, in good business English, that accurately summarizes what you have learned from the experience.  If it does not meet this standard, you may be asked to re-do it to satisfy the course requirements.

If you are required to produce a final report, the following guidelines will be helpful. A few paragraphs on each guideline item should cover most of what your Faculty Advisor needs to know about your experience.  Again, always be clear about your Faculty Advisor's requirements.

Remember: your final paper, logbook, and the student and employer evaluations will be due by Friday of the fifteenth week of the semester, that is the week before finals week.

  1. Summarize your (workplace) department's major responsibilities.  
  2. List your major duties, beginning with the most important to the least important.
  3. Describe the technical/professional skills you acquired or utilized during this work experience.
  4. Describe what communication/workplace skills you think you most improved in during this work experience.
  5. Evaluate how this experience related to your academic goals and your career goals.
  6. State what resources you acquired, or learned about, that will help you plan your future learning or career; for example, references, a network of contacts in your field, professional organizations, etc.
  7. Describe any specific work-related problem or issues you encountered.
  8. Include a description of any type of product, program, or process you developed or participated in during this work experience.
  9. Do you think this course has been a significant part of your education at LCCC?  If so, why?               

NOTE: UPDATE YOUR RÉSUMÉ.  Because of this work-based learning, you have increased the number of experiences in which a prospective employer might be interested.  Before you forget these experiences, take the time to update your résumé by including them.
