You have been assigned one profession (with your name in Red) in the list, below.
the profession by identifying and assessing international, national and/or
large regional organizations that relate to your chosen field.
Your preliminary research will be due during discussion
of Professional Practice
and Collaboration. You are responsible for continuing
research and providing a summary (hard copy, email attachment
in Word, filename <301-10_professions_lastname.doc>).
For the paper, provide the following:
definition of profession including scope of work
name of organization(s);
URL, or web address, in full, including "http://...";
- a paragraph description of organization, and, in detail, its
specific relevance to the profession;
For purposes of this assignment, and the class discussions
that follow, "organizations" refer to associations and
organizations (usually non-for profit); university educational
initiatives; federal (and state) agencies; and—to a lesser
extent—commercial, for-profit enterprises.
On the Internet, organization's Web sites are typically identified
by their suffix, being, respectively: org, edu, gov, and com.
This construct of Web site domains is not a mere coincidence but
the (virtual) reality, and 'architecture', of our socio-economic
and political organization. In tandem with a critical assessment
of each, these organizations help define the scope, purpose, and
services of particular professions (see below), and their interrelationship.
