One of the challenges in higher education is providing authentic high-stakes experiences that simulates real-world-practice. Even more challenging is customizing that experience to individual career goals in specific fields of study, while also providing appropriate scaffolding and mentoring, to ensure “safety-nets” for the various stakeholders involved.

This presentation showcases how practicing instructional designers can facilitate these opportunities through a mentor-apprentice model, via graduate-practicum credit-courses.
