Overview

Course Description
This course provides opportunities for individualized study, which meet the learning needs of students who are transferring credit from another institution or program and/or are challenging courses through prior learning assessment and recognition (PLAR). Working with program faculty, students will develop and complete assignments/projects/portfolios, which meet individually identified criteria and specific learning outcomes from one or more THRT courses.
Course Content

The following global ideas guide the design and delivery of this course:

  • Responding to individual needs is an underlying concept in the Department of Therapeutic Recreation. This course design allows application of this principle to individual students.
  • Learning and acquisition of skills, knowledge and attitudes occur in many contexts.  Individuals draw on their own experiences to increase their understanding of theory and its links with field practice.
  • Evidence of learning can take many forms.  Collaborative planning between student and faculty contributes to learning activities, which match goals of personal growth.
  • A growing number of Therapeutic Recreation students enter the program with previous learning through transfer credit and prior learning assessment and recognition.
  • Some courses that students are transferring from another institution or program do not sufficiently match the essential course learning outcomes of the course to be credited.  This course provides learning opportunities for students to achieve all of the essential course learning outcomes and therefore maximize transfer credit.
  • Sometimes PLAR students achieve part of the essential course learning outcomes.  This course provides learning opportunities for students to meet a satisfactory standard on all course learning outcomes in the challenged courses and therefore maximize PLAR credit.
  • Course learning outcomes from TR courses will be gathered in unique combinations.  Two course learning outcomes will equal 1 academic credit to a maximum of 12 learning outcomes or 6 credits.

    Methods Of Instruction
    • Independent study – either online and/or face-to-face and supplemented by seminars and/or workshops as indicated.
    Means of Assessment

    This course will conform to Douglas College policy regarding the number and weighting of evaluations. Typical means of evaluation would include a combination of:

    • Oral presentation
    • Demonstration
    • Quizzes
    • Project and reflective narrative. 

     

    This is a Mastery/Non-Mastery course.
