Students review and practice self and peer evaluation, critical thinking, decision-making, problem solving and business practices in relation to practicum placements and career search skills. Students use journaling techniques to document practicum experiences and create artefacts for professional career portfolios. Learners will develop and maintain portfolios with artefacts as evidence of attainment of core competencies during the practicum. Interviewing and interpersonal skills are rehearsed through role play activities. Pre-learned material is independently reviewed, studied and formally assessed through a written jurisprudence examination that supports success in practicum and on written licensing examinations after graduation. Online forums assist students in linking with Dental Technology faculty, specialists and student colleagues regarding dental laboratory technology topics and issues.
