Office of Field Experiences
Field experiences and culminating clinical practice are integral components of all initial teacher preparation programs in the College of Education at Georgia Southern University.
The College has strong longstanding collaborative partnerships with P-12 schools to provide a wide-range of field experience and clinical practice sites for teacher candidates. Teacher candidates receive diverse field experiences in a service area that includes 13 school districts totaling over 70 schools within in 60 mile-radius of the university. Formal agreements are signed annually between the College of Education and school districts to identify the roles and responsibilities for each partner involved in field experiences.
With the intent of maximizing benefits, a set of procedures for field experience implementation has been identified. The structure described on this and linked pages is to be followed for the placement, monitoring and exiting of each Georgia Southern University undergraduate student in a field experience.
