The learning contract identifies their site, supervisor, and what they expect to do and learn from that experience. During the experience, students will keep a reflective journal. At the end of the experience, the student and site supervisor will be sent a Final Evaluation to complete and the student will be required to create a summary paper and put together a presentation that displays his/her learning through unique documentation.
