Students will reflect on their Practicum field work experiences and write a synthesis paper which integrates learning across the entire program. The synthesis paper will form the basis of a poster which will be produced and formally presented at the annual College Park Scholars Academic Showcase on May 4, 2012. Course Objectives By the end of the semester, students will demonstrate synthesis of GPH learning outcomes from each course.

At these sessions, students will provide an update on the status of their paper and/or poster. These sessions will also facilitate on-going communication between students and faculty throughout the semester and an opportunity to address any issues or challenges. Course Requirements and Policies Each student is required to meet with their respective GPH supervisor a MINIMUM of 3 times per semester. Check the class Blackboard every week for announcements!

All enrolled students are provided access to the University’s email system and an email account. All official University email communication will be sent to this email address (or an alternate address if provided by the student). Email has been adopted as the primary means for sending official communications to students, so email must be checked on a regular basis. Academic advisors, faculty, and campus administrative offices use email to communicate important and time-sensitive notices. Students are responsible for keeping their email address up to date or for redirecting or forwarding email to another address. Failure to check email, errors in forwarding email, and returned email (from “full mailbox” or “unknown user” errors for example), will not excuse a student from missing University announcements, messages, deadlines, etc. Email addresses can be quickly and easily updated at or in-person at the Student Service Counter on the first floor of the Mitchell Building.
