This is a pass/fail course. It must be successfully completed to graduate from the Graphic Design program.
The fieldwork placement runs from March 15 to April 23, 2021. You need to complete a minimum of 120 hours during the 6 week period. Students are expected to work the same hours as other employees.
As an acting employee, you will have access to personal or confidential information about the firms and clients they are working with. You must recognize the importance of maintaining confidentiality. Failure to do so constitutes a serious breach of ethics which may result in expulsion from the placement. This would incur an ‘incomplete’ grade, which would mean you would need to repeat this course the next year.
This assignment assesses your participation in either or all of the following:
- Fundraising events
- Grad Show organization
- Activities related to your team
- Completion of fieldwork
- Completion of a fieldwork journal
You must complete a journal describing your activities and duties during fieldwork.
These journals should not contain sensitive materials but an overall log of type of work done at your place of work.
Your progress is reviewed by your supervisor to give feedback on academic performance, attendance and attitude. The program coordinator(s) may visit each workplace site during the six weeks to discuss the student’s progress with the employer, or discuss progress through a telephone conversation.
If you wish to be on the confirmed graduation list, journals and reports must be submitted no later than two days before the conclusion of the placement.
A document will be sent to you at a later date.
