Undergraduate Co-operative Education
Co-op and work experience students are expected to complete successfully a Professional Practice course, consisting of seminars and workshops (typically one hour per week), prior to undertaking their first work term. This course is designed to prepare students for the work term by exploring learning outcomes related to experiential and work-integrated learning. The following topics will be covered: Co-op program objectives and expectations, job seeking skills, competencies self-assessment, transferring skills to the workplace, learning objectives, job performance progress, competencies development and evaluation, and career management and development. Additional topics will be determined by the individual co-op programs. Students should consult with their co-op program area for additional course information. This course is a corequisite for students participating in the placement process prior to their first work term.
