Learning Contract

What is Learning Contract?

Learning contract is drawn between students and their supervisor/industrial tutor to develop learning plans. Learning objectives, strategies, and expected learning outcomes are negotiated, with the student’s competency and the supervisor’s/tutor’s expectations taken into account.


Baldwin Wallace College (2013) includes a learning contract in their Internship Site Supervisor Handbook. This learning contract is an agreement between the student, company (employer), and faculty coordinator, on the goals, objectives, and action plan of an internship/placement.
