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.
