Externship component classes that include students from diverse placements provide particularly rich opportunities for students to learn about different perspectives. This deepens student understanding of the work in their placement and allows students an appreciation of work at different placements. Students integrate and learn different skill sets in a classroom than at a placement, while simultaneously reflecting and incorporating different perspectives. This panel discusses different modalities that a teacher can use in the classroom to best enhance the students’ learning experience. Topics will include how to teach and discuss professionalism, best practices, placement issues, written reports, and small group sessions. The panel will provide a forum in which participants can model and design a classroom that will best facilitate learning outcomes and professional growth.
