Learning and Teaching Approach

Internship
(480 hours)

An internship is an experiential learning programme done in a professional setting. Students will be placed in an organisation for the entire internship period and will undertake work assignments and/or projects in the organisation. It is through such work in the real-world environment where students learn and develop the competencies and experiences relevant to the intended learning outcomes of this course.
Each student will be supervised by (1) an Organisation Supervisor at the internship organisation, and (2) a Faculty Supervisor in NTU.
The Organisation Supervisor will be the key person working with and interacting with the student on a day-to-day basis. The Organisation Supervisor will be one providing guidance and feedback to the student on a regular basis.
The Faculty Supervisor from NTU will serve to facilitate student’s learning and progress through interactions via e-journal submissions, email, phone, and/or visits. The Faculty Supervisor will also be each student’s first point of contact for any matters arising from the internship. Student can also contact the respective Internship Programme Manager at NTU’s Career and Attachment Office as an alternative.

Academic Integrity

Good academic work depends on honesty and ethical behaviour. The quality of your work as a student relies on adhering to the principles of academic integrity and to the NTU Honour Code, a set of values shared by the whole university community. Truth, Trust and Justice are at the core of NTU’s shared values.

As a student, it is important that you recognize your responsibilities in understanding and applying the principles of academic integrity in all the work you do at NTU. Not knowing what is involved in maintaining academic integrity does not excuse academic dishonesty. You need to actively equip yourself with strategies to avoid all forms of academic dishonesty, including plagiarism, academic fraud, collusion and cheating. If you are uncertain of the definitions of any of these terms, you should go to the Academic Integrity website for more information. Consult your instructor(s) if you need any clarification about the requirements of academic integrity in the course.

Assessment Rubrics for E-Journal 1 and E-Journal 2

You are required to submit a total of three (3) e-journals documenting and reflecting on your internship experience in relation to the relevant intended learning outcomes of this course.

The first two (2) e-journals (E-Journal 1 and E-Journal 2) will be assessed in week 3 and week 6

respectively during the internship. These are purposed to be formative assessments where you will receive feedback on your progress.

For each of these e-journal submissions, you are to present evidences and reflections on each one of the specified three (3) ILOS listed in the assessment table. The e-journal template and guide will be provided to you at the start of your internship.

· Evidences can be provided in the form of text descriptions, photographs, or drawings (ensure you seek clearance from your internship organisation should sensitive information be involved).

· Reflect critically on the evidences and the experience producing them, relating them to how they demonstrated your achievement of the specific ILO (or how they helped you to do so): Particularly but should not be limited to - what were the tasks (or observations) and their contexts, actions taken (or lessons drawn) by you and their reasons, and results achieved? What did you learn (e.g. information, knowledge, skills)? Evaluate your own capabilities and attitude where appropriate.

· If you wish to provide further evidences and reflections on ILOs which you have covered in an earlier e-journal submission, you are encouraged to do so. Such new evidence(s) and reflection(s) should demonstrate your development and growth.
