Practicum in Professional Education
This book was written to inform, encourage, and influence educational leaders in higher education who are interested in the practicum/clinical phase of education across the professional disciplines to engage in increased dialog and collaboration regarding the enhancement of this experiential-learning component of pre-service preparation.
The Practicum in Professional Education is the culmination of a three-year SSHRC study examining the future of the practicum/clinical phase of professional education. It offers a representative sampling of the views, experiences, and innovative practices presented by leading educators from several professional disciplines who attended the Saskatoon forum, in addition to several specifically invited authors. These cross-disciplinary contributions provide current and future perspectives on creating and maintaining effective practicum/clinical programs.
