C460 – Culminating Project and Seminar
3 Credit Hours
This reflective practice seminar and culminating project will give students the opportunity to examine their practice while integrating and applying theoretical frameworks and funds of knowledge from previous coursework and experience. The course will specifically focus on using ecological, biopsychosocial, and life course approaches to examining the contexts and systems in which students practice, and the ways in which they understand and engage the adults, children and families with whom they interact. Students will also examine the implications of integrating and applying cognitive, linguistic, social, emotional, and physical domains of knowledge, as they are shaped by history, culture, and experience. Throughout the semester, students will be asked to systematically apply these domains of knowledge to a particular issue or question in their practice, and to complete a culminating project to integrate and share their efforts.
