Distance Field Placement: Part-time Program

Ryerson’s School of Early Childhood Studies offers part-time program students the flexibility to pursue their field education in a way that’s geographically convenient. This means that you can complete your third-year placement course and/or fourth-year placement course in a setting that is outside the boundaries of the PDF filedistance option map.

CCLD363 will be offered remotely in the fall 2020 semester.  Both Distance placement students and Local placement students will complete the same tasks.

CCLD464 Distance Option

CCLD464 will be offered remotely in the fall 2020 semester.  Both Distance placement students and Local placement students will complete the same tasks.

You will be evaluated by your field educator at the midterm and at the end of your placement. You will also self-evaluate your own performance at the midterm and at the end of your placement.

Students will complete three course documents, listed below, and follow this protocol:

  • Complete them by hand (not digitally)
  • Print them on white letter-sized paper
  • The first two forms remain at the placement site for the duration of the placement
