How are you staying afloat this year?

Keeping up with impacts to placement opportunities posed a great challenge for our faculty team, community partners, and our students.

We took a creative approach by finding new ways to support community initiatives, engage in online workshops and practice applied skills. In a virtual environment, we developed a point system for participation in what we’ve called our Virtual Placement Sandbox.

In the Sandbox, students can self-enroll and keep engaged in meaningful ways with guidance from faculty and collect points for each activity completed.

A minimum weekly point score is required. Tracking sheets are submitted to help keep everyone organized.
