ALA Annual 2015 Discussion Question #6: For reference education, what can we as a profession do to provide students with a balance between theory and practice? For example, how can we provide and advocate for more reference practicums and internships?

We will pose this question during our discussion forum at ALA Annual. The forum is titled What Should be The Future of Reference Education for Librarians (see http://alaac15.ala.org/node/29464). 

If you will not be there or if you would like to share your thoughts in advance, please feel free to do so here. 

 

For reference education, what can we as a profession do to provide students with a balance between theory and practice? For example, how can we provide and advocate for more reference practicums and internships? What other information service opportunities might contribute to that experience?
