EDUC 835: Practicum I

This is an interactive course, designed to support reflective practice, and integration of research, theory and practice. Students will be in a range of different practicums and will have structured opportunities to work through problems of practice together as a cohort. Practicum placements will vary; it could be a new experience, a little bit above and beyond what they normally do, or something they've done for years that they want to focus on more deeply with a microscope. The goal of the practicum is for students to have a practical experience to help them integrate theory, research and practice. The practicum will also be the basis of the student’s thesis. as it will also be the site of their research. Finally, through these courses students will focus deeply on developing their e-portfolio.
