ABSTRACT

This study addressed the economic fallout effects of the 2020 COVID-19 very contagious virus pandemic that has been heavily shouldered by 2020 collegiate interns and their internship sponsoring firms, in the U.S. (as well as those and other people and businesses around the world). This paper 's research foci is on 2020 U.S. interns and would be ones, as well as internship sponsoring company, and addresses the following four issues: (1) The diverse COVID-19 pandemic responses of both interns and internship sponsoring firms to the economic fallout from the effects of the spread of COVID-19;(2) identification of challenges and opportunities that COVID-19 has presented to interns and their sponsors;(3) the extrapolation of number of intern affected and ballpark economic dollar loss they, individually and collectively suffered. from COVID 19;and, (4) communicate with this study's readers lessons learned and best practices employed in other types of crises and cross-cultural crises. As there is no precedent anywhere to the present global COVID-19 virus pandemic crisis this study, as it is economic fallout focused, used the works of precedent authors of studies related to ebbs and flows of economics related to the internship subsector during the U.S. Great Recession years' (2007-2016) to harvest from them lessons learned and best practices, and, as well, formulated some insights of today. Figures and tabular presentations are offered, along with categorized table of recommend good reads, for those interested, concerning the coping with and survival of crises' pending, occurring, and recovery years.

ABSTRACT

To provide a measured, data-driven response to the changes COVID-19 brought about that also reflects the organizational mission of protecting the public, NC-TRC used feedback and guidance from the profession, legal counsel, and accreditation bodies within the credentialing industry to increase access to certification and support for applicants and certificants. The NCTRC financial assistance programs were heavily promoted, and changes were made to certification standards and interpretive guidelines related to internships, access to the CTRS exam, and options to regain certification for those outside the re-entry period.

ABSTRACT

The COVID-19 pandemic caused many internships during the January 2020 semester to be shifted to a virtual/ remote format. Due to the unprecedented nature of this forced shift, there was minimal consistency in how virtual/remote internships were conducted. Using a cross-sectional design, this study aimed to summarize the experiences of RT/TR interns during the COVID-19 outbreak and assess their perceived competency in the NCTRC Job Task domains. A quantitative survey was developed for interns to self-assess their perceived competence in the ten domains. Interns reported being concerned about finishing their internship and graduating yet were satisfied with the amount of support received from their site and faculty supervisors. Interns perceived their highest competency in the areas of professional relationships and awareness and advocacy. Concerns are discussed regarding the inconsistent nature of remote internships during COVID-19, as well as implications for the profession and suggestions for future research in this area.

ABSTRACT

Purpose>This cross-sectional survey captured educational leadership preparation programs' (ELPPs') relative emphases on 12 evidence-based school leadership competences and related pedagogical approaches to identify the gap between optimal performance per the literature base and actual practice reported for US ELPPs.Design/methodology/approach>A survey with closed and open-ended questions was sent to all program coordinators of US-based ELPPs.Findings>Results indicate instructional leadership and use of data are especially emphasized competences, and readings and class-based work were the most prevalent modes of instruction. The most prevalent teaching methods are text and class-based work, and residencies/internships. The least prevalent are instructional tools associated with practice and rehearsal, such as simulations.Research limitations/implications>The data were collected prior to the world-wide shift in educational delivery associated with the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. While they do not capture during-pandemic approaches, the national-level findings provide an impetus for altering or strengthening approaches to leader preparation based upon the shortcomings these results suggest.Originality/value>There has been no previous inquiry into all US ELPPs regarding how their curriculum aligns with empirically based leadership competences, what their pedagogical approaches include or the needs they identify to further improve their program's quality.

ABSTRACT

The unprecedented impact of COV1D-19 recreated our learning environment. With nearly all institutions shifting to remote teaching during the outbreak, our program was quickly tasked to transition to online instruction for two experiential courses: The May intersession New York study tour for undergraduate students and the summer internship program for graduating seniors whose internships were cancelled or could not be secured due to the pandemic. We integrated experiential learning through appointment journaling in the May intersession New York study tour and through weekly activity reports in the virtual alternative summer internship. Throughout the entire process and in logical sequence, students in both courses were able to engage in the experiential learning cycle developed by Kolb (1984). These modifications successfully connected students to fashion companies and exploratory career experiences.

ABSTRACT

Comparing the application requirements of an online program with those of other programs, including in-person programs, may provide information about the program’s accessibility and rigor. [...]this information may serve as a proxy for how potential employers will perceive the quality of graduates from this program. [...]good online programs will also provide structure to aid students in gaining networking opportunities in their specific markets (e.g., local associations of applied psychologists, Society for Human Resources Management chapters). How does the program facilitate social connections among students across the virtual divide? Because peers represent potential collaborators, coworkers, and friends, it is valuable to know whether or not and how the graduate school experience will foster such connections. How are typical aspects of mentorship, such as unscheduled informal meetings, handled in a remote format? Because online education was foisted on many faculty during the COVID-19 pandemic, there is no reason to assume that any one individual will be comfortable navigating technologies such as videoconferencing software or accustomed to regular meetings via such means.

ABSTRACT

[...]to address what could be done to enhance online I-O graduate program engagement, we decided to ask individuals who are affiliated with these programs. [...]a small group (14%) were not aware that they should be engaging with the broader I-O community. [...]the survey results showed that the best mediums for disseminating and communicating about these opportunities are social media outlets (e.g., LinkedIn, YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter), with LinkedIn as the most frequent choice. Possible topics could include SIOP members from various jobs (e.g., internal consultant, external consultant) sharing which knowledge and skills current job holders use and need to be successful across different careers. Because online I-O graduate programs have a small, diverse group of students, individuals may have difficulty finding others who share characteristics or interests.

ABSTRACT

Community outreach has an extremely positive influence on a human being's life and helps to shape young minds into more productive members of society. Whether involved in internships for college credit or volunteerism within the local area, exposing students to diverse ways and means in which other people live and work will not only open students' eyes, but also open many doors to unlimited opportunities for future growth within the students' field of interest. Implementing community service into the collegiate academic curriculum enhances the educational background and better prepares the graduating undergraduates for the outside 'real ' world. With an uncontrollable environment such as a Pandemic, how have prospects for college students been affected and to what extend are trainee experiences being compromised?

ABSTRACT

The COVID-19 global pandemic has put humanity to the test in many different areas and the higher education domain is no exception. Many universities responded to the challenges of the pandemic with different solutions for online teaching, distance learning and implementation of practical exercises using virtual or remote laboratories. Nevertheless, one aspect of the higher education was somehow left out of the focus of the main efforts for normalization and stabilization of the educational processes-the internships.For many study programs, especially in the area of the professional higher education, the students are required to complete at least one internship. This work-based learning approach provides hands-on experience in a workplace environment, which cannot be emulated or replaced otherwise. By taking the internships, the students develop particular skills, knowledge and understanding, learn how to solve problems and how to work in pairs or in teams, but above all-they prepare themselves for the daily workplace routines and what will come next in their lives.In this paper we present a pilot initiative for the implementation of virtual internships in several different areas of higher education. All activities are implemented as part of a project funded by the Erasmus+ program of the EU.In the Introduction section of the paper, we present the goals, the consortium, the expected outcomes and the main results of the project. In the next section of the paper, we discuss the developed model for virtual internships and the means that can be used for its implementation. The paper continues with the results of the conducted pilot internships, with involvement of students from four universities in Bulgaria, Greece and Serbia, as well as several internship providers from different industrial sectors. The paper is concluded with discussions on the results of the internships and with recommendations for further actions. © 2022 IEEE.

ABSTRACT

The results of this study will help form guidelines for developing students' capacities for learning in authentic workplace settings to better prepare them to be effective and efficient in their chosen careers. This phenomenological study examined factors influencing practice-based learning and how participants learned from their practice. Six fourth-year students majoring in sports science who had recently returned from their internships took part in this study. Data were collected through semi-structured interviews. Thematic analysis was performed on the transcripts to characterize the participants' shared experiences, which yielded the following seven themes of factors influencing their practice-based learning: (a) clear career goals and identification of an appropriate internship facility;(b) self-efficacy;(c) reflective practice;(d) good workplace relationships;(e) organizational leaders as agents transferring knowledge;(f ) knowledge-sharing behavior;and (g) impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Internship students also learned to identify their weaknesses in this study, communication skills, group fitness instructor skills, and a professional exercise instructor image.

ABSTRACT

The Indian travel & hospitality industry has exponentially developed and has the substantial potential of the amazing social and chronicled legacy, landscapes, and places of natural characteristic excellence spread over the nation. The Indian hospitality and travel industry helps the nation in generating revenue and plays a highly significant role in creating sources of foreign exchange. 39 million opportunities for new jobs were created in 2020. Moreover, the no. of jobs will be increased to 52.3 million in the travel industry of India by 2028. Covid19 has a severely deleterious influence on the educational system of the entire world. Thus, the entire educational platforms i.e. from kindergarten to the universities have been shut down due to the high density of population to avoid the spread of the deadly coronavirus. Propitiously, having gained the experience from the epidemic 2003 SARS, educationalists of the hospitality world are ceaselessly changing reaction activities to the obscure pandemic situation and applying their best to keep up the activity of the training framework. The study investigates 443 students of hospitality management which are in the final year of their graduation. Thus, this paper is an attempt to understand the perception of hotel management aspirants', with special focus given to the housekeeping department.

ABSTRACT

Internships help students connect what they have learned in the classroom to the real world, and students with access to internships are more likely to graduate and secure employment. However, many students are unable to find an internship by the time they graduate. This experience report describes a program where volunteer software engineers mentor students as they work on open-source projects in the summer, offered as an alternative to a traditional internship experience. We catalog the considerations involved in providing an experience similar to a traditional internship, describe our program's design, and provide two years' worth of participant evaluations and career outcomes as a measure of efficacy. The program served mostly undergraduates from non-R1 schools who are underrepresented in technology, and achieved similar educational outcomes to a traditional internship program. Most promisingly, mentors were willing to serve as a professional reference for 80% of students and the number of graduating seniors who secured full-time employment in technology was 7 points higher than average (despite occurring during the COVID-19 pandemic). © 2022 ACM.

ABSTRACT

This article aims at understanding the meaning of the professional curricular internship period experienced by physical education trainees of two regional universities located in the Maule Region, Chile, during the Covid-19 pandemic in the first semester 2020. From the methodological standpoint, the study takes an interpretive-qualitative stance, hence three focus groups were organized and six in-depth interviews were conducted totalling 34 students in the process of professional curricular internship. The group and individual interviews were carried out via Zoom due to the health authority restrictions. The results show scarce contact with the students in the educational establishments, scarce use of social networks as teaching strategies, and a negative impact on motivational levels resulting from virtual teaching. The aforementioned issues emerge from the reflective processes and self-learning of the trainees. This study suggests pondering these reflections in the initial teaching training processes taking into account the relevance of the professional curricular internship in the construction of the teaching ethos of future Physical Education teachers. Alternate : El presente artículo tiene como objetivo comprender el significado del periodo formativo práctica profesional, que vivenciaron estudiantes de la carrera de pedagogía en Educación Física de dos universidades regionales ubicadas en la región del Maule, Chile, durante la pandemia Covid-19 en el primer semestre del año 2020. Desde el punto de vista metodológico, el estudio se instala en la perspectiva interpretativa-cualitativa, de tal manera que se realizaron tres grupos focales y seis entrevistas en profundidad a un total de 34 estudiantes en proceso de práctica profesional. Las entrevistas grupales e individuales se realizaron vía Zoom producto de las restricciones de la autoridad sanitaria. Los resultados dan cuenta de un escaso contacto con los estudiantes de los establecimientos educacionales, utilización de redes sociales como estrategias de enseñanza, y un impacto negativo en los niveles motivacionales producto de la enseñanza virtual, cuestiones que emergen a partir de los procesos reflexivos y de autoaprendizaje de los estudiantes en formación. Estas reflexiones, se sugiere sean consideradas en los procesos de formación inicial, en consideración a la relevancia de la práctica profesional en la construcción del ethos docente, por parte de futuros profesores de Educación Física.Alternate :Este artigo tem como objetivo compreender o significado do período de formação da prática profissional, vivenciado por alunos da carreira de pedagogia em Educação Física de duas universidades regionais localizadas na região de Maule, Chile, durante a pandemia Covid-19 no primeiro semestre do ano 2020.

ABSTRACT

Dietetics students have indicated that experiential learning activities play a critical role in their professional development and preparedness for the workforce (Barr et al., 2002;Osinga & Keller, 2013). [...]when ND faculty facilitate extracurricular experiential learning, it can positively affect competency-based learning and student perspectives (Djalilvand et al., 2020;Knight et al., 2020). Leveraging virtual conferences and resources, offering clear structure and objectives in the virtual setting, and providing Zoom and virtual etiquette training are all practices that ND staff can perform to enhance experiential learning opportunities for students (Cridland et al., 2021). Additionally, involving students in faculty-driven or college-wide research can boost research exposure and confidence for students to pursuit graduate degrees. [...]it is up to the ND faculty to broaden their scope in identifying experiential learning opportunities for their students, even in the virtual environment.

ABSTRACT

Purpose>The world of work is becoming digital, a process accelerated by the recent COVID-19 pandemic and resultant remote working guidelines. Online internships have become more popular in this context, and yet there remains a lack of research investigating how these internships are perceived across stakeholders. The purpose of this paper was to begin to address this research gap by exploring academic, student and employer perceptions of online internships with a focus on employability.Design/methodology/approach>The research explored 156 stakeholders (53 students, 50 academics and, 53 employer/professionals) perceptions via a mixed-methods online study encompassing quantitative responses to internship vignettes, alongside open-ended questions designed to explore stakeholder attitudes in more depth.Findings>Stakeholder groups reported similar attitudes towards online internships. Overall, online internships were viewed as valid, flexible, work experience, linked to skill development and likely to enhance student employability. However, concerns were raised regarding communication protocols and development, intern isolation and a lack of organisational immersion.Practical implications>Based on the research, the authors make three recommendations to continue to enhance and develop the online internship experience: ensure multiple methods of regular communication between student and organisation, attempt virtual immersion in the organisation and assign each intern additional support beyond their immediate supervisor.Originality/value>Based on a holistic and novel analysis of key stakeholders' viewpoints, this paper provides much needed insights and evidence on how to design and quality assure effective online internship practice.

ABSTRACT

AimsCrystal House is a specialist CAMHS ID inpatient 5-bedded unit based in the Kingswood Centre, North West London - for children aged between 13 and 18 years with primary diagnosis of Intellectual Disabilities with or without additional concerns that warrant admission to hospital for purpose of assessment and management. Reporting this case, we wanted to highlight complexities of management of children presenting with neurodevelopmental conditions and history of trauma.MethodsThis is a case of a fourteen-year-old girl with established diagnoses of Moderate Intellectual Disability, Childhood Autism, Foetal Alcohol Syndrome and childhood trauma. She was admitted to our CAMHS ID Assessment and Treatment Unit with a nine- year history of self-injurious behaviour, suicidal ideation and voice-hearing experiences – after failed treatment in the community and in-patient treatment (including under restrictions of long-term segregation) on generic CAMHS unit. Her current treatment includes a person-centred Trauma- Informed Positive Behaviour Support Plan;individual and family therapy psychology sessions based on the principles of trauma-informed care and consultation with staff on trauma-informed care. She also undertook ADHD assessment, and we are in the process of optimising ADHD medication.ResultsTrauma-Informed Positive Behaviour Support Plan was a new concept for the team. Therefore, this was supported by training and consultations with staff. The latter was introduced to create a psychologically oriented environment using trauma-informed care principals and helping the team understand what trauma means and how it affects the individual. ADHD assessment confirmed the diagnosis of ADHD which was followed by optimising ADHD medication.ConclusionSystemic and a person-centred approach is used for this child with concerning presentation and history of neurodevelopmental disorder and childhood trauma.

ABSTRACT

Interprofessional collaboration must be taught in healthcare curriculum to ready graduates for the clinic, however, limited evidence is available to guide pediatric physical therapy faculty in best practices. This quantitative retrospective pretest-posttest study examined collaborative competency attainment, satisfaction, and self-confidence of 84 Doctor of Physical Therapy students from four campuses of a private university. Students participated in a live, remote simulated learning experience and completed the Student Satisfaction and Self-Confidence in Learning scale and the Interprofessional Collaborative Competencies Attainment Survey-Revised. There was significant improvement in student collaborative competencies after the simulated learning experience and students were satisfied and confident in the learning experience regardless of demographics. Findings support implementation of a remote simulation for the purpose of interprofessional collaboration in pediatric physical therapy education and may relate to other fields. Future research may explore the influence of interdisciplinary, remote simulation interventions on student behavior in the clinic and patient outcomes.

ABSTRACT

Efforts to expand the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) workforce have been topics of United States policy action for more than 50 years (Hira 2010). Unfortunately, among U.S. undergraduate curricula, STEM has one of the highest attrition rates (Tinto 1993) with less than half of students in the U.S. that enroll in an undergraduate STEM program ultimately receiving a degree in a STEM field (Hayes 2009). Naturally, the high rate of attrition is a topic of persisting concern. Many programs have been designed and implemented to model best practices in retaining students in STEM disciplines. One retention strategy is to engage STEM undergraduates in research experiences, and a number of programs have been implemented to provide such experiences. The Towson University Research Enhancement Program (TU REP) is one such program. This cohort-based program supports faculty in the development of course-based undergraduate research experiences (CUREs). In this note we describe a CURE in machine learning offered by the Towson University Department of Mathematics whose development was supported by TU REP. We categorize this course along the spectrum of traditional, inquiry, CURE and internship in each of the five dimensions characteristic of a CURE.
