Information for Clinical Educators
Clinical educators are critical to the professional development of teacher candidates. 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.
Feedback Forms in Taskstream
You may be asked to complete a Feedback Form in Taskstream. You will login into Taskstream to complete the evaluation and follow the steps below. Click here for resources on how to use Taskstream and the contact information for support.
If your candidate exhibits behaviors inconsistent with the eight dispositions, please complete the Professional Dispositions of Effective Educators – Evaluator Form and submit it to the candidate’s field instructor (supervisor). The field instructor will then share the form with the candidate’s program coordinator.

Real-world classroom experience
I’ve had education students in my class before, but this is the first time I’ve had student-teachers from UD. They were amazing. I am in awe of their dedication to the field of education. They are always moving around the classroom, offering a sweet smile, a gesture of encouragement, anything they can think of to provide support for my kids. They came into the classroom so professional and got to know the students as individuals. Within days they had identified the kids who needed extra help. I would definitely have UD students in my classroom again.
