Showcasing Learning: Class Open Houses

MASTER’S PRACTICUM OPEN HOUSE

The three-credit Practicum (GLIS 699) provides second-year Master of Information Studies students with the opportunity to apply concepts and practices learned in coursework, and to strengthen skills by assisting in professional-level work under the guidance of a qualified information professional. The program remains one of the most popular electives at the School, with 47 enrolments in the Winter 2015 semester.

On April 7, 2015, the School opened its doors for a showcase of visual presentations of students’ practicum projects in libraries, archives, and other information settings. A special thank-you is extended to practicum site supervisors for their involvement in this program.
