Learning unit contents

This individual placement will give students the opportunity to contrast their theoretical skills with reality, whether on the ground, socially or through research. It will enable students to put into practice one or several actions on the ground by applying a scientific methodology relating to the deontological code. The placement will be time-limited and will feed into personal reflection on the role of the adult trainer and on the student's own integration into a training situation.

Learning outcomes of the learning unit

This course is a "mission" training placement for students in the Second Masters programme. The placement gives students the opportunity of leading/contributing to a project or mission, and to be an actor in a professional environment.

Extent of resources. Relevance of the use of resources in relation to the information on the ground. Use and integration of theoretical and practical elements. Ethical dimension. Identifying one's own strengths and weaknesses (in relation to oneself). Analyse the route taken and what the placement has brought (the student in relation to his or her placement.
