To be eligible for New York State certification, candidates registered in college teacher education programs are required to complete at least 100 clock hours of field experience prior to the student teaching or internship experience. Some departments or majors in the School of Education require additional field experience hours prior to the student teaching or internship experience. Field Experiences are developed to provide opportunities for candidates in teacher education programs to observe and apply theory learned in an authentic classroom/practical setting. In addition, it provides candidates with opportunities to work with a full range of students, including varying ages and abilities and different racial, ethnic, socioeconomic, and linguistic backgrounds. At all levels of field experiences, candidates are asked to act as "participant observers", and to closely monitor all classroom/setting interactions. Candidates are also asked to seek ways to contribute to the environment in which they are placed.
The Field Placement Office works closely with the Curriculum & Instruction Program and the Technology Education Program to arrange field experience for teacher candidates. The configuration and placement procedures for each field experience vary depending upon your program and the block you are completing, but all field experiences are a requirement of a specific course and are directly linked to course content.
