Students apply their academic knowledge while acquiring and expanding transferable skills through work experience. A self-directed learning agreement completed by the student, with input from the employer and approved by the course facilitator, will detail the learning outcomes and how proof of learning will be verified. Reflective journal entries, online discussion, face-to-face interviews, a self- and employer evaluation plus completion of a final product are required. This is an open learning class which takes place from May to December each year, with the majority of work being done over the summer months. Students must first obtain summer employment before registering for the course.


Open to students enrolled in the College of Agriculture and Bioresources.


Completion of 60 credit units at the university-level.
