Field Placement Preparation

Course Code: MMDD 229

Academic Year: 2019-2020

This course provides students with an opportunity to research the career opportunities available to interactive media specialists in the Greater Toronto Area. The underlying theme that guides this research effort is each student's requirement to secure a field placement for the winter semester. The internship search process is a collaborative effort between each student and a designated program faculty member. A critical component in securing an interactive media internship is a portfolio review with prospective field placement hosts. To that end, students expand and refine their personal website in anticipation of presenting their portfolio to prospective internship hosts. Students work with a course facilitator to establish and meet a series of development milestones to ensure their portfolio is ready for public review in a timely fashion.
