Field Experience: The clinical program includes a year-long clinical experience with a Fall seminar [EDPL 6920] and Spring seminar [EDPL 5650]. Teacher candidates are expected to observe and teach in a classroom a minimum of three half-days each week during Fall semester.

Program of Study: Applicants who are admitted to the program must meet with their assigned academic advisor prior to beginning any course work. All teacher candidates must complete an approved program prior to the end of Summer 2014.

Licensure: To satisfy requirements for licensure, each teacher candidate has the option to take the new Ohio Assessment for Educators [OAE] content exams in his/her areas of concentration. It is the candidate's responsibility to submit passing scores on the OAE to his/her academic advisor and the Office of Student Affairs in the Patton College of Education no later than the end of the first semester of enrollment or the end of Fall semester when enrolled in the clinical program. If a candidate fails to take or pass the OAE exam by the required deadline, he/she must meet with his/her advisor to revise the program of study.
