Working with Tensions: Weaving Practicum Learning Environments
Practicum courses are a unique component of the Bachelor of Science degree for students in the Child Youth and Family Major and the Adult Development Major. Practicum provides students an opportunity to work alongside professionals in the community enabling them to integrate what they learn in the classroom with professional practice while at the same time extending services to the community through direct work with clients and or the completion of a program or project. Students are placed in school settings as well as a host of community human services organizations. The two posters presented each speaks to the unique opportunities and challenges of these settings.
