EDU 593: Introduction to the Teaching Profession

Class Program
Credits 1
In accordance with Nebraska Department of Education's Rule 20 (regulations for the approval of teacher education programs), all teacher candidates are required to complete a minimum of 100 contact hours with students. These fieldwork based practicum experiences must be completed prior to clinical practice and provide opportunities for candidates to observe, assist, tutor, instruct, or conduct research (NDE, Rule 20, p. 17). This graduate level course is designed to introduce MAT teacher candidates to professional educational practice. Students will become familiar with field work expectations and the Nebraska Teacher Code of Ethics prior to field work placement, as well as begin to develop their own professional identity and skill set. During the course, students will compete their first 50 hours of field work with supervision and support from the seminar instructor.
