Practicum Professional Experience Plan (PPEP)

Assignment 1: Practicum Professional Experience Plan (PPEP)

Success comes from knowing that you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming.— John Wooden, My Personal Best: Life Lessons from an All-American Journey

As you considered in this week’s Discussion, your experiences in the practicum can provide a vital avenue for professional development.

For this Assignment, you develop a Practicum Professional Experience Plan (PPEP) to outline how your involvement in the practicum will contribute to your growth as a professional and allow you to hone your specialization knowledge and skills. The PPEP consists of two or three objectives related to professional development that you will address during your Practicum Experience.

Note: In the practicum manual these are referred to as your individualized learning objectives.

To prepare:

  • As necessary, review the information related to developing objectives provided in this week’s Learning Resources.
  • Revisit the objective(s) you crafted for this week’s Discussion, and reflect on the ideas exchanged in this forum. Refine the objective(s) as needed, making sure they reflect the higher-order domains of Bloom’s Taxonomy (i.e., Application level and above). Note: You will be developing two to three professional development objectives for this assignment.
  • Think more deeply about areas for which you would like to gain application-level experience and/or continued professional growth. How can your experiences in the practicum help you achieve these aims?
  • Discuss your professional aims and your proposed practicum professional development objectives with your Preceptor to ascertain if the necessary resources are available at your practicum site.
  • Download and save the Practicum Professional Experience Plan Form provided in this week’s Learning Resources.

To complete your Practicum Professional Experience Plan:
