Friends! Welcome to Comm297R - Communication Practicum!
The purpose of this class is to get you out of the classroom
, working on real-world, professional projects. A practicum
, as the name implies, is an opportunity to practice what
you have been learning in the classroom. In this class, each of
you will be asked to come up with a personal project that
you will do over the course of the semester. You will give me
regular progress reports, and report to me at the end of your
project, but other than that you will be working pretty much on
your own. Be sure to choose a project that will advance you personally
or professionally. The project should be tied to your career goals.
Imagine yourself sitting in a job interview and your prospective
employer says, "Ok, I see which classes you have taken, but what
have you DONE?" Your project should be something you would be excited
to point to and explain.
So follow these steps:
Please contact me if you have any questions. Even though we will not be meeting face to face, I am available and willing to help you in any way possible. I may or may not bother creating this class on Ilearn, since I think we can communicate just fine via email, phone, etc. Make this a worthwhile experience!
