Learning happens everywhere
SAIL (Self-Authored Integrated Learning) is Northeastern’s framework for helping you:
- Capture the learning you do across the contexts of your life.
- Make the most use of your personal qualities and transferable skills.
SAIL and RISE
When presenting at RISE, you engage in skills like design thinking, systems thinking, advocacy, negotiation, and self-control. You also have experiences that employ help-seeking, comfort with ambiguity, humility, empathy, collaboration and teamwork, leadership, and ethical reasoning.
These are just some of the many skills and qualities in the SAIL framework that help you understand and articulate not only the product of your RISE research, but also the process of your RISE experience and how it prepares you for the future. The purpose of SAIL is to help you capture this learning as it occurs, and to help you identify and communicate your transferable skills.
RISE helps you learn how to communicate your research to the world.
SAIL helps you communicate how the experience contributed to your development as a researcher, innovator, scholar, and whole person.
Watch this short video on how to incorporate RISE into your SAIL timeline.
