Stretch Assignments

When people hear the term “professional development,” they often think about training courses, pursuing degrees and certificates, or other methods of formal instruction. However, if you’re going to advance your career, you’ll also need to develop skills on the job, sometimes by taking assignments slightly above your experience or comfort level. We call these “stretch assignments.” In conversations I’ve had with RIT faculty, staff and administrators, they frequently cited stretch assignments as an important part of professional development.
