Guidebooks for Successful Clinical Experiences
The Patton College of Education is committed to teacher education programming that is fully grounded in clinical preparation and practice, and interwoven with academic content and coursework. By immersing teacher candidates in a clinically-based approach to learning, our future educators have extensive opportunities to connect pedagogy with practice, all while under the tutelage of skilled faculty, mentor teachers and university clinical educators. Successful clinical experiences are most effective when all stakeholders are working together as a team. It is important that each member of the team understands his/her role in the clinical model. The following guidebooks have been developed to aid partners in guiding and mentoring Patton College students through successful clinical experiences.
