Evaluation of GSt 250/350, Project-Oriented Field Study.
Lunneborg, Patricia W.; Mitchell, Sandra K.
This report evaluates the effectiveness of an experiential field study course at the University of Washington. The course, titled GST 250/350, has different goals from a traditional volunteer program in that the student's education and experience are paramount; the services he provides are secondary. The student's motivation also differs somewhat from that of a volunteer because his purpose is that of gaining more knowledge of disciplines such as sociology, education, psychology, law, more about himself (capabilities, weaknesses, career interests), and more about the relationship of classroom learning to its application in society. Through the use of student papers, agency ratings and student questionnaires, it was concluded that the 112 enrollees had attained their educational objectives and that the course must be judged a legitimate part of the University undergraduate curriculum.
