M-TR 8:00am - 10:30am at the Wiggins Library Reference Desk, first floor (and via "Chat" from the "Ask a Librarian" icon on the Wiggins Memorial Library homepage).
Hours subject to change. Other hours available by appointment (contact me by email)
Students will spend a minimum of 30 Hours over the course of the semester on a practicum activity through a combination of preparation, service, and reflection. We will spend time reflecting on your organizational experience through class dialogue, essays, and field journal entries. Your grade will come from the tangible class projects that come out of your work with your chosen organization rather than simply from completion of the hour minimum.
If you choose not to do the service hours, you will be required to make up the points by completing a more robust research paper. You will need to substitute a 7-10 page research paper for an 11-14 page paper, which will then be worth 40 % of your grade with the included presentation
