Clinical Experience Seminars
Seminars are held each semester (spring and fall) for candidates enrolled in LIS 728 Clinical Experience I – Student Teaching and LIS 729 Clinical Experience II – Internship. The instructor for LIS 728/729 arranges and conducts the clinical practice seminars. The purpose of the seminars is to acquaint the candidates with the clinical experience, including the best practices journal requirement, the possible components of the experience, and the expectations of the university supervisor’s visit. The seminars assist candidates in the completion of their clinical experiences, graduation, licensure and/or endorsement. Topics of the seminars vary but include answering questions candidates may have regarding their clinical experiences, updating information on licensure/endorsement requirements, and sharing current news regarding courses and the Graduate School of Library and Information Science. Candidates are expected to participate in discussions on best practices and to share appropriate materials with colleagues. All candidates enrolled in LIS 728 or LIS 729 are required to attend the requisite seminars.
