Shout out to faculty members Sheldon Koufman (BITM) and Linda Cheng (MAD) and field placement officer Elizabeth Campbell (BITM) for adapting quickly to online delivery and leading a new approach to work-integrated learning at DC—virtual field placements. Using Riipen, a cloud-based experiential learning platform, this team has created virtual field placement opportunities for Business Administration – Marketing and Contemporary Web Design students. Sheldon’s Marketing placement course page was recently highlighted by Riipen as an exemplary use of the platform for virtual internship during a webinar attended by over 200 participants from other colleges across Canada.
