    As a college instructor, I'm wondering if any alternative provisions are being made for students to complete their required internship hours.

    I would love to hear what other Professors are doing. It is a real issue for students to get in their field work hours since most programs are closing or have closed or just don't want someone from outside coming into the facility. Totally understandable but how can we support our students to meet their required field hours???

    I too, would like to know what other options we have - I have 9 field work students trying to complete hours and all schools/preschools and most child care have closed, so not sure  how they can complete their intended hours in the needed term.
