EDU 594: Transition to Practice

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 assess the required field-based practicum experiences. Teacher candidates will be required to synthesize their fieldwork experiences, complete written reflections on the evaluations received from the cooperating teachers and draw connections between MAT coursework and the fieldwork experiences in the capstone portfolio which is submitted for evaluation prior to the approval of the clinical placement.
