The Office of Field Placement is responsible for accepting and evaluating requests for field observations, clinical experiences, and student teaching. Field Placement represents an essential and invaluable component of the professional development process for all candidates in the School of Education. The field hours required by specific classes enable students to gain valuable insight and implement their studies in their teaching areas. We strive to offer a wide variety of opportunities for professional candidates in teacher education.
We collaborate with local schools to find placements and provide continuous communication, assessment, and feedback during the process. We believe that students will be better prepared for their professional careers by being involved in field experiences that expose them to a variety of cultures, economic backgrounds, and diverse settings. This will foster professional growth that will positively affect their abilities to become consummate educators.
