Within the first two weeks of beginning the work term, the student will meet with the person to whom they are reporting to review their duties and responsibilities and / or project goals. Based on that discussion, or during that discussion, the student will need to determine three things that they will have to learn or demonstrate to meet the employer's expectations. Both of the above will be recorded in Section 1 of the Work Term III Report which can be found on the UM Learn website.
Month Two / Three
Just prior to the Mid Term Site Visit, the student will complete the Work Term III Reflection Exercise. Copies of both reports should be printed and available for the site visit. The information on the Reflection Exercise will be reviewed and discussed only by the student and Co-op Coordinator.
Immediately following the Co-op Coordinator's site visit, the student will return to the Work Term III Report to record the employer's current evaluation of the work term. This will include any competencies that the employer or Co-op Coordinator identified on which the student needs to continue to concentrate.
Each student will complete the remainder of the Work Term III Report. The deadline date for the completion / submission of this web form will be announced each term.
It is also the responsibility of each student to ensure that an Employer Final Evaluation of Co-op Student Web Form is completed during the last week of the Co-op placement. The student should set up a meeting with the Mentor and / or Supervisor for an exit interview during which the web form is reviewed. The deadline date for submission of this web form will be announced each term.
Please note: the Co-op Office requires all forms prior to submitting a grade (P/F) for the work term.
