Section 3: Projected Timeline/Schedule


Estimate how many hours you expect to work on your practicum each week. Per the practicum guidelines, you may use half your hours for professional development and up to half for your Practicum Project (i.e., 72 hours to accomplish your practicum professional development objectives and 72 hours to complete your Practicum Project objectives, which you will establish later in this course).


This timeline is intended as a planning tool; your actual schedule may differ from the projections you are making now.


I intend to complete the 144 practicum hours according to the following timeline/schedule:
