- field trips to local organizations,
- guest speakers from those organizations,
- and assignments that ask students to research local issues.
In some cases, students in Praxis I courses are engaged an introductory fieldwork activities; the time commitment for this fieldwork does not exceed 2 hours per week or 20 hours per semester.
