Developing a Learning Contract
The student and faculty sponsor work together to plan all aspects of the internship and complete a Learning Contract, which includes discipline-specific learning objectives and relevant learning outcome measures.
The student should procure a position/job description from the internship site supervisor that describes the intern’s role and responsibilities.
While this document describes what the intern will be doing, the learning objectives should describe what the student hopes to learn from the overall experience, especially as it pertains to their course of studies. Learning outcome measures are vital for assessing learning and attainment of the learning objectives.
