Field Experience/Practicum Information

Field Experience is the time that all teacher candidates spend in the field PRIOR to Clinical Practice.  For all departments within the COEHS, the hours and requirements vary.  However, all programs are designed to be sequenced to increase the complexity and levels of engagement with which teacher candidates apply, reflect upon, and expand their knowledge and skills.

Mentor Teachers for all field experiences must submit a Mentor Teacher Application to the FECP Office.  See Mentor Teacher page for this form.
