Quality Practicum Experiences
The Faculty approves only those practicum placements that provide a quality learning and educational experience, and are sufficiently flexible to meet individual student learning objectives.
The Faculty also expects that the agency supervisor will:
- Have appropriate qualifications
- Provide day-to-day guidance and supervision in an environment that inspires and promotes learning
- Provide an opportunity for you to observe and learn about the whole organization, beyond your job description
You’re expected to ask questions, research specific areas thoroughly, and be fully engaged in your practicum to fulfill your assignments and requirements.
All students in the Faculty of Kinesiology, Sport, and Recreation will enroll in their respective practicum courses (BARST – RLS 441/447/449, BKin & BScKin – KIN 490/492 or 491/493) during their final year of study. It's important for you to acquire as much related experience as you can during your university tenure.
If students do not meet the academic expectations of their degree program and are required to withdraw, their practicum will be cancelled until they are permitted to continue with their undergraduate program
