Field work will be part of each class and explained at the beginning of each term. Instructors will be asked to introduce all relevant field work for their class no later than five weeks into the term. Exceptions may apply depending on the course and/or if a special or individual project is arranged.
Each class will have a Fieldwork Mentor. In some areas the Fieldwork Mentor will be the same person - in other areas there may be a different Fieldwork Mentor for each class. The Fieldwork Mentor for a class will communicate with the course instructor prior to the beginning of the term to determine which field work projects are to be completed.
Depending on the course's student learning objectives, field work preparation can be light or not so light. It is likely that the Fieldwork Mentor will simply perform his/her normal job duties and have a student along to learn what those duties might be. NWEEI staff will assist the Fieldwork Mentor with preparation.
All students need a Fieldwork Mentor to complete the program. Every effort will be made to make arrangements to have the Fieldwork Mentor/Mentee meet but if it's just not possible to make a meeting time, staff at NWEEI will try to locate an alternate Fieldwork Mentor.
We are working on creating a visual contact map. Essentially, we are encouraging Fieldwork Mentors to contact people with as few 'middle men' as possible.\r\n
