The Flight Academy, powered by Suitable, is an engagement platform accessed through a desktop or mobile application that keeps a log of the outside of classroom (co-curricular) activities. Complete activities to earn points and badges around 9 Core Competencies that employers want today.
BUSA Professionalism Courses/Hughes Leadership & Career Program (BUSA) courses will use the Flight Academy as a tool to track the completion of the required course activities. Reference material will remain in D2L, including the syllabus and instructions. A passing grade in BUSA courses will be achieved by successfully completing all required activities for the corresponding badge in the Flight Academy platform.
The Flight Academy is not just for BUSA course badges. Non-course badges (e.g. the Professionalism badge) are found on the "Achievements" tab once you select "Milestones." You can earn points and compete for incentives and prizes. Additionally, your co-curricular transcript (a record of all your outside the classroom activities completed on The Flight Academy) can be shared with employers!
Choose activities that matter the most for you and make sense with your professional development. There are required activities, but you can personalize your option activities to help you reach your goals.
