BACKGROUND - NONTRADITIONAL FW
•More community-based sites are needed to meet FW placement demand
•Typically, these FW sites rely upon non-traditional, distant supervision.
•These learning environments require high degree of structure to support experiential self-directed learning
•High structure requires detailed planning
•A planning matrix method to maximize the learning environment is proposed.
