EDD819 Internship

This course provides an opportunity to experience doing an internship, enabling the learning necessary to implement and perform in a lengthier position. Through this internship students gain an appreciation of the relationship between theory and practice, and new knowledge in a vast spectrum of education contexts. The supervised internship is built upon selected activities observing ISLLC Standards. The experience enables students to become aware of the changing dimensions of educational work and to play a role in its evolution. Requirements begin with development of a Learning Agreement in consultation with a field supervisor who possesses a doctorate degree in their current professional field. Next, students will submit an outlined plan for completing 30 internship hours. This outline must be approved by faculty and Aspen University before students can begin internship hours.
