Learning ObjectivesLearning objectives are the student’s learning contract. Students have two weeks from the start of work to develop learning objectives.
The objectives, which are the student’s learning contract, must be approved by the work supervisor, faculty coordinator and student.
The director keeps the original contract. It is the student’s responsibility to provide copies to their faculty coordinator and work supervisor.
In order for academic credit to be earned, objectives and required number of hours worked must be met by the end of the semester.
