WDT 2.01pr - Work-based Learning Courses :


SUMMARY/SCOPE
Edmonds Community College offers credited, work-based learning opportunities through individual courses - called internships, externships, work experiences, or  practicums - in some educational programs. Credit is granted only for experiences that meet defined learning objectives, are completed while the student is in the program; and are part of the student’s educational goal.

DESCRIPTION
Work-based learning experiences are courses that have, in general, outcomes that are tied to an experience or set of experiences in a workplace. These classes are offered in programs where the student learning will be enhanced and deepened by the applied or “real world” experiences. 

PROCEDURE DETAILS
Students may only enroll in work-based learning classes associated with the particular degree or certificate which they are pursuing; and after all prerequisites have been met. Procedures on when to sign up, what experiences are acceptable, and how to find an internship, externship, work experience, or practicum placement are individual to the program pathway in which they reside. A repository of these procedures is maintained through the Career Action Center.

Programs (departments) which include classes that fall into the work-based learning category (as of the time of approval of this policy) are as follows: Accounting, Allied Health Education, Addiction Studies, Business Management, Business Information Technology, Computer Information Systems, Construction Management, Culinary Arts, Early Childhood Education, Emergency Management, Family Support Studies, Hospitality and Tourism, Horticulture, Occupational Safety and Health, Paralegal Practical Nursing, and Social and Human Services.
 

GLOSSARY TERMS
Work-based learning courses encompass internship, externship, practicum, and work experience classes.
