Use of Logic Models to Plan and Assess Graduate Internship Experiences
TLRPTIL Volume 56, Number 6, ISSN 8756-3894
"A logic model is a type of map." What better use for a map than when charting a course through internship activities, observations, and projects. In addition to coping with the expectations of many different stakeholders, planners of internships face demands for meeting academic goals and juggling time schedules. Logic model maps provide guidance for staying on course while providing the needed rationales for all people participating in an internship project or program. Outcomes from the internship can be accurately assessed using the professional standards set in the model. One cannot argue with results that document positive impact on the learning community, which are more likely when following a logic model map that connects inputs to clearly defined outputs.
