Field Experiences

Program candidates seeking teaching certification are required to complete approved and documented field experiences in the classrooms of certified teachers prior to their own student teaching.

The Instructor of each OATCERT course will establish the procedures and the number of hours required. In addition, participants in EDU 625 Theory and Practice in Secondary Education will deliver a mini-lesson of at least 30 to 40 minutes in length during their field experience. Course instructors will provide specific directions for completing written or teaching assignments related to the fieldwork.

Candidates who are not currently teaching will be responsible for securing their own placements with certified teachers in their content area. Candidates who are currently teaching may complete the field experience requirement, including the mini-lessons, in their own classrooms.
