Available BCIT course outlines can be accessed by selecting the term, the course subject and the course number from the dropdown list(s) below. If outlines are available for your selected term and course, they will then be listed. If any of these steps don’t result in what you are looking for, it indicates that no outline is currently available. If you are looking for an outline from a current term please check back closer to the start of the course or consult another outline from a previous term.  Please keep in mind that the content from previous outlines may be different than current offerings of the course. For historical outlines not covered in this system please contact BCIT Library at 604-432-8370 to see if they have the outline you require.

The course outline is a statement of educational intent and direction, providing BCIT students with clear, concise, accurate and readily available information related to course content and administration. BCIT course outlines are governed by Policy 5403 and the creation of course outlines is subject to the procedure described in 5403-PR1.

While no outlines currently exist for this course, below are the course learning outcomes/competencies.

Course Learning Outcomes/Competencies

At the end of the practicum period, students will be able to:

  • Work productively as a member of a team in a forensics-related setting, or in a discipline that utilizes techniques similar to those performed in an investigative capacity
  • Plan and perform duties that integrate and apply theories and classroom learning directly related to their course of study
  • Apply the skills of critical thinking, decision making, and problem solving
  • Interpret fact situations, data, cases, reports, etc., to which the body of knowledge gained during their course of study is relevant
  • Report results in a manner consistent with accepted standards and practices in their discipline
  • Utilize work experience in the development of communication skills, both oral and written

NOTE: The foregoing are high-level learning outcomes that are applicable to all Forensics B.Tech. students. As noted below, the nature, scope, and extent of the work to be performed by each student are to be agreed upon in advance by the student and the organization involved, documented, and approved in advance by the faculty coordinator. This agreement, which will be signed by the student, the program coordinator, and the organization’s representative, will document, for the student’s particular work assignment:

  • The specific learning outcomes expected (these will be mapped to the general-level outcomes above)
  • The precise nature, scope, and extent of the work the student will perform (this will demonstrably involve the application, by the student, of knowledge and skills that the student would be expected to have attained as part of his or her academic studies)
  • Specific requirements for the student to record, and report on, the completed work

All of the terms embodied in this agreement must be fulfilled by the student in order to complete the work period successfully.

Effective as of Spring/Summer 2011
