20. Co-op for Elective Credit at Your University
Thank you for attending our session at the CAFCE PEI National Conference.  We appreciate the lively discussion and your stories of co-op courses at your schools.  We ran out of time and did not get to address the obstacle question cards that you filled out at the beginning of the session.  I have included these as an attachment, the cards do not represent everyone that were in the room as the break ran a bit long and we hard started when some people were arriving.  As mentioned Shawn and I are available for any questions you have.
