The Learning Contract

The Psychology Department uses an online learning contract for students in PSY 4940. Components of the learning contract include:

Learning Objectives

List what you hope to carry away from your internship, the skills you wish to acquire, and the knowledge base you want to build during your experience. Consult with your on-site supervisor and Dr. Webb to establish these goals.

Learning Activities

List the tasks you will be assigned as an intern. These tasks should clearly support your learning objectives. Consult with your on-site supervisor to establish the required duties. One of these activities must be a weekly supervision meeting with your on-site supervisor.

Other requirements

As part of your internship, you will meet with the director of internships, Dr. Marcia Webb and with staff at SPU's Center for Career and Calling. You’ll receive a syllabus from Dr. Webb early in the quarter outlining requirements for the internship class that meets approximately every other week.

Your assignments will include a log and a journal, reports of research, and a final evaluation paper. You’ll also be required to provide an evaluation of your site, and your site supervisor will evaluate your performance.
