The primary purpose of Preclinical and Student Teaching experiences is to enable candidates to engage in early and ongoing experiences in various school settings. All clinical experiences link theory and practice. Candidates are required to complete the clinical experiences as prescribed by their program including student teaching. Preclinical experiences are taken concurrently with their professional education courses. During these experiences candidates are required to attend all scheduled seminars. The School of Education assigns and supervises all placements and cooperating teachers evaluate candidate performance along with university supervisors. For detailed information regarding the policies and procedures of the preclinical and student teaching experiences, refer to the Preclinical and Student Teaching Handbooks.
