Experiential Learning: Balancing Theory and Practice 

Last spring. Brad Taylor 
satisfied his curiosity about 
California and enrolled at 
California State University, 
North ridge in Los Angeles 
for a semester. But he did 
so while paying Maryland 
resident tuition through 
the university's National 
Student Exchange pro- 

Through the universi- 
ty's Cooperative Education 
Program, Taylor, who is 
interested in law, also 
received six hours of 
behavioral and social sci- 
ence credit while earning a 
GS-4 government salary at 
the Federal Highway 
Administration's legal Trad Martin 

council's office in Virginia 
last summer and the previ- 
ous fall. 

Currently, through an internship 
with the Center for Political Leader- 
ship and Participation on campus, 
he's researching newspapers for an 
upcoming book about Bill Clinton's 
presidential campaign, transition, 
and first term in office. 

Not all students are as ambitious 
as Taylor, but manv are discovering 
how experiential learning programs 
like student exchanges, cooperative 
education assignments and intern- 
ships can complement their formal 
academic learning and provide an 
advantage when it's time to find a 

"A lot of kids go to college with- 
out any kind of focus," says Taylor, a 
senior government and politics 
major. "I think experiential learning 
helps you decide what you want to 
do in college instead of just showing 
up. It sure helped me." 

Administered through the Career 
Center in Hornbake Library, the uni- 
versity's experiential learning pro- 
grams offer paid or unpaid work 
experiences with specific educational 
objectives that may be granted aca- 
demic credit. 

Despite its broad range of applica- 
tions, some people may question the 
value of experiential learning at a 
research university. 

"The value to me is that it inte- 
grates the theoretical with the practi- 
cal," says Georgia Sorenson, Taylor's 
boss and director of the Center for 
Political Leadership and Participa- 
tion. "1 think it is very important for 
a balanced education." 

The balance also seems to pay off. 
Sorenson says that 25 percent of all 
her seniors who intern off campus are 
offered jobs in the office where they 

Linda Cast, director of the Career 
Center, says experiential learning 
also serves as a retention tool for stu- 

and Erika McClammy 

dents who don't see the connection 
between their major and their life 
after college. 

"When experiential learning 
involves a faculty sponsor, it promotes 
greater faculty-student interaction, 
which helps retention," explains 
Gast. "Departments also benefit from 
increased communication between 
faculty and employers. " 

Perhaps the biggest attraction for 
experiential learning students is the 
increased prospects for employment. 

"Increasingly, we are seeing 
employers hiring interns and co-op 
students as they decrease on-eampus 
recruitment of graduates," says Traci 
Martin, associate director for experi- 
ential learning. "As a result, students 
who participate in these programs 
often have an advantage in the job 
market. Employers feel they can 
learn a lot more about someone in six 
months than they can in a half-hour 

While internships are generally 
shorter in duration (three to six 
months) and aren't always paid, Mar- 
tin says cooperative education assign- 
ments last a minimum of six months 
and are always paid (on average, $9 
an hour). 

Co-op assignments and intern- 
ships are not automatically credit 
bearing. Students who have earned 
56 credits can register for three to six 
hours of experiential learning credit 
per semester under a department's 
386 course number and up to 1 2 cred- 
its during their undergraduate pro- 
gram, explains Martin. 

Whether or not students receive 
academic credit, they must have their 
faculty sponsor and site supervisor 
sign a learning proposal which out- 
lines specific educational objectives. 

"We don't want them just answer- 
ing phones," says Martin, who over- 
sees about 70 co-op assignments and 
250 internships per semester. "We 
really do want them to learn from the 


Erika McClammy, a 
senior economics major, 
learned she wanted to go 
to law school after her 
internship with the Nation- 
al Safe Kids campaign at 
Children's Medical Center 
last summer. 

"I attended debates on 
Capitol Hill, researched 
projects on lead poisoning, 
seat-belt laws, and bicycle 
helmets, and wrote letters 
to senators and representa- 
tives," says McClammy, a 
Banneker scholar from Bal- 
timore, 'it was a good 
experience and 1 gained a 
lot of personal contacts." 

As a result of her experi- 
ence, McClammy, who is a 
peer advisor in the Career 
Center, interned with the student 
legal aid office on campus so she 
could polish her legal writing skills. 

"Internships don't just pop up out 
of thin air," she says. "If you're seri- 
ous in your search and take advan- 
tage of the Career Center resources, 
you'll find one."

Rearick Plans Major Exhibit of Renaissance Painter Bassano 

Jacopo Bassano, Man of Sorrows, 1553. 
Below are Art History and Archeology profes- 
sor William Rearick's comments on the paint- 
ing, quoted from the catalog accompanying 
the Bassano exhibits: 
"Jacopo emphasizes a distressing contrast 
between the rustic candor with which the 
ugly, suffering body is evoked, an abstracted 
realism...and the almost feminine delicacy of 
the shadowed face. The contradictory ele- 
ments are unified by light, whose dual source 
Is the phosphorescent aureola of supernatural 
origin and a sharply objective illumination of 
the figure; together they Immerse the Image 
In a transfiguring glow." 

In 1989 Art History and 
Archeology professor 
William Rearick proposed 
a major exhibit devoted to 
Italian renaissance painter 
Jacopo Bassano. 

Four years later, that 
concept has just become 
reality with two showings: 
one held last fall in Bas- 
sano, home of the 16th 
century Italian painter; 
and the other which 
opened this month at the 
Kimbell Museum in Ft. 
Worth, Texas. 

In the time between the 
conception and fulfillment 
of Rearick's idea, he criss- 
crossed Europe and Amer- 
ica in a quest to gather 
Bassano's works from the 
world's major art galleries. 
He lived in Venice for two years to 
coordinate the Italian exhibit and 
wrote hundreds of pages of critical 
assessment of Bassano's life arid art. 

Simultaneously, Rearick helped 
plan another major exhibit, "Gior- 
gione, Titian and the 16th Century in 
Venice," which opened this month in 
Paris. He wrote 65 catalog entries for 
the Paris event. 

The two Bassano exhibits present 
the most complete collections of the 
artist's work ever assembled, with the 
Ft. Worth event being the first out- 
side Italy devoted solely to Bassano. 

The Kimbell Museum exhibit 
includes 54 paintings and 18 draw- 
ings, while the Italian one had 79 
paintings and 17drawings. 

The Bassano exhibits include sev- 
eral paintings which, because they 

are so fragile, have never travelled 

In fact, a Copenhagen museum 
simply would not allow its most frag- 
ile works to travel. 

Since Bassano's death in 1592, his ■ 
reputation has "diminished slightly," 
says Rearick. "The exhibits should 
lead to a reevaluation of Bassano's 
work, to make him better known." 

"In his own time, Jacopo Bassano 
was considered part of the great 
quartet" which also included Titian, 
Tintoretto and Veronese, Rearick 

Bassano originated the "peasant 
genre," which Rearick describes as 
"painting in which country life, peas- 
ant life or rustic life is the main 

The Bassano exhibits were timed 
to coincide with the 400th anniver- 
sary of Bassano's death, since no one 
knows precisely when the artist was 

The painter's life and work are 
detailed by Rearick in a 128-page 
chapter of the catalog accompanying 
the exhibits. 

The chapter, which Rearick has 
been asked to turn into a book, tells 
of Bassano's rise from a helper in his 
father's craft shop to a painter 
reknowned in Venice and beyond. 

Through his career, however, the 
artist remained immersed in the 
country life of Bassano, located in the 
Venetian hinterland. 

Rearick, who specializes in the 
Venetian renaissance, has been teach- 
ing at Maryland since 1969. He curat- 
ed the celebrated Veronese exhibit at 
the National Gallery of Art in 1988.

Voice Center Practices Good Speech 

continued from page 1 

The group, which meets once a 
week, is comprised of vocal music, 
drama, broadcast journalism, busi- 
ness and management and education 
majors, as well as faculty. 

The difference between how this 
program operates and how problem- 
atic speech was traditionally 
approached is the group therapy. In 
the past, communication skills were 
taught in a classroom setting. This 
was ineffective at changing habitual 
voice behavior, which is the root of 
the problem, McCall said. 

The program now teaches partici- 
pants what to practice, rather than 
lecturing on what they should be 

Participants first come to the clinic 
for individual voice evaluations. These 

evaluations pinpoint the areas which 
need to be improved and the areas in 
which vocal function is strong. The 
evaluations are then used in planning 
the group sessions. 

The group meets to discuss what 
vocal aspects it will work on for the 
week. Then members break up into 
smaller groups for the second meet- 
ing, in which they practice vocal exer- 
cises and establish a home program. 

The program began last spring on 
an individual basis, which was the 
first time a clinical model of treat- 
ment was attempted. The success of 
the first participants verified it was 
worth pursuing. 

This fall, the first group program 
began with eight participants, again 
successfully helping clients fix their 
vocal weaknesses. 

McCall and his colleague Ellen 

Brigham hope to have the program 
running next fall with a maximum 24 
participants. McCall is proceeding 
cautiously, though, because he wants 
the program to be one which others 
can model. 

In the future, McCall hopes to for- 
mally approach some of the groups 
the program could help the most. He 
envisions separate programs running 
concurrently for education, broadcast 
journalism, business and vocal music 
majors, drama students, and faculty. 

But if you are still wondering if 
the program really helps you reach 
the back of that lecture hall, just ask 
Kathryn Bartol, professor in the Col- 
lege of Business and Management. "I 
have no problems setting my micro- 
phone aside and I can still reach the 
back of the hall."
