About this book

This book provides successful models for field-based learning experiences in Family Life Education. Each chapter provides an overview of the implementation details, including key points that others developing a plan could use to guide their thinking. Each chapter is grounded in previous scholarship and identifies how the elements of high-impact practices are addressed in the “real world”. Contributors share their experiences implementing service learning, internships, and other educational platforms outside the classroom walls. This book also addresses both specific content areas within family life education, as well as general course management strategies.

Reviews

 

“This book captures the essence of field-based learning in relationship to Family Life Education (FLE). The content in this book is grounded in the literature on high-impact practices and service-learning. As an experienced FLE instructor having used high-impact practices for many years, this book supports what I have been doing although I did discover ideas to incorporate into my own course.”  (Debra L. Berke, Director, Psychology Programs, Wilmington University, USA)

“This will serve as a much-needed guide for FLE professionals to plan new high-impact experiences or upgrade their current practices. By focusing the book on internship, practicum, service-learning, and community-based experiences, the field has a valuable resource for students of varying levels in their degree programs. I would suggest that FLE professionals seriously consider investing in this book to gain practical, relevant activities, and experiences they could implement and that their students would greatly benefit from in their career preparation.”  (Paula J. Tripp, Clinical Associate Professor and FACSED Coordinator, Human Development and Family Sciences, Oklahoma State University, USA)

“This work has the potential to be of immense practical benefit to instructors in family life and especially to the students. In a field that is part in focused on improving relationships in the home, helping students translate theory to practice is always a quest worth pursuing. I view this work as a must on family life instructors’ bookshelves. It can be an effective guidebook to designing significant, high impact learning experiences for our students in family sciences.” (Stephen F. Duncan, Professor in the School of Family Life, Brigham Young University, USA)
