Developing An Online or Hybrid Course For Business Administration Internships


  • Margaret Arrison Nolan


Institutions of higher education often require their business administration majors to complete an internship as part of the curriculum (Wheeler and Waite, 2021). Internships provide undergraduate students with opportunities to gain practical work experience through the application of the knowledge gained in the classroom (Wheeler and Waite, 2021). In the spring of 2020, many traditional in-person business internships shifted to remote work environments due to restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. In response, instructors were required to adapt their internship courses to an online or hybrid modality. The purpose of this extended abstract is to provide a model of pedagogical best practices for teaching a business administration internship course in an online or hybrid learning format.
