Information for Clinical Educators

student listening to advisor

Clinical educators are critical to the professional development of teacher candiates. By engaging in a partnership with us, you help our teacher candidates apply what they learn in their University courses and promote the development of their professional knowledge, skills, and dispositions.

Your feedback on the teacher candidates’ performance is an important part of their learning experience.
