These experiences provide teacher candidates with opportunities to complement their academic preparation with real world application under the guidance of expert university and field professionals. Researchers have found that field experiences, especially student teaching, are instrumental in setting the stage for careers that are personally fulfilling, professionally rewarding, and make a positive impact on the students our future teachers will serve.
Planning for field experiences starts with students mapping out their classes in advising, and working with their program coordinators on details for their placements. The Office of Field Experiences works with the different programs and our partner institutions to create placements, ensure all learning goals are communicated, and to coordinate documentation for licensure.
