dc.description.abstractThe Southern Alberta Institute of Technology Library and Information Technology Programme and the SAIT Library have over two decades of experience in placing and hosting student practicums. Practicums are an essential experiential learning component for students in the L.I.T. programme. Hosting practicums gives libraries an excellent opportunity to contribute to the development of future library professionals. Technician and degree programme placement staff and potential practicum hosts from all types of libraries will benefit from the insights delivered at our presentation. Continuous evaluation and improvement are key to making practicums as effective as possible for students, instructors, and library staff, as well as to maximize experiential learning . The question period will allow attendees to share their practicum experience and learn from ours. This dialogue will certainly contribute to the improvement of the SAIT L.I.T. programme/SAIT Library placement partnership and for other library programmes and hosts in the audience.en_US
