INTERNSHIP IN EARLY CHILDHOOD AND FAMILY STUDIES
Module Synopsis
單元概要
The Internship course allows students to translate their knowledge and skills about early childhood and family studies into actual practices. Students are required to do practical work, such as talks, seminars, workshops, competitions, play-based activities, community events, and other child- or family-oriented initiatives, in a designated site, such as a school, a NGO, or a family education centre, for 6-8 weeks (100 working hours). Students are also required to attend pre- and post-internship visits, workshops, and seminars, so that they are fully prepared to communicate with and provide support to children and families from different backgrounds and have opportunities to reflect upon their experiences. Through the internship course, students can not only gain first-hand experiences of serving children and families, but also develop their more generic skills, including in collaboration, communication, and problem solving. Students are required to write up a report to summarize their internship experiences, explaining how their prior knowledge and skills can be applied in the real world.
